Some of us muse on the pleasures of a rural law practice. And others do something about it.
I have written before (like, here) about efforts to transform underemployed lawyers into busy rural attorneys. Not to romanticize the notion, but there is something fulfilling about a law practice in which you know many residents of your community.
Around the country, many communities suffer the effects of too few attorneys to do the necessary work. And a recent story in Associations Now explored the strategy of two bar associations—in Nebraska and Iowa—that devised strategies to address the challenge.
Would such efforts bear fruit in Arizona? Evidence suggests our rural areas face similar challenges. Let me know what you think.Follow @azatty
