If you’re looking for some good legal advice, you may have to look a little harder if you live in the country. Attorneys are getting harder to come by in rural areas, but Midwestern states are trying to recruit more lawyers back to small towns. Harvest Public Media’s Grant Gerlock reports.
While Nebraska is pushing its Rural Practice Initiative, the University of Kansas School of Law is actively involved in recruiting students and encouraging them to explore career opportunities for practicing law in smaller communities across the state through its Rural and Solo Program. Interested parties should contact the Assistant Dean of Career Services at the KU School of Law, Arturo Thompson, at (785) 864-9257 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
