Hello there, interested public! I’m still settling in back at NALP’s offices after last week’s Annual Education Conference in San Diego, but the news continues, so here’s the scoop. Major stories this week include a new roadmap for local governments interested in impact litigation out of San Francisco and Yale, a huge proposed cut to Ontario Legal Aid that has left many service providers scrambling, and a strike by legal aid attorneys in New York City.

Oh, and the Washington Post reported that “OPM [Office of Personnel Management employees were briefed” on Trump Administration plans “in the final stages of review” to “pull[ the agency] apart and [divide] its functions…among three other departments.” So there’s that as well.

For all this and more, read on.

See you around,
Sam
