How Legal Aid Leaders Can Help

Although your state's IOLTA program will lead the charge to relieve the squeeze on IOLTA revenues, if you are an executive director, resource developer, bar leader, or Access-to-Justice activist in your state, you too can help. Here are some of the things you can do:

  • Urge your IOLTA program to adopt an aggressive revenue enhancement strategy, and offer your help.

  • Help publicize local banks that support IOLTA (through favorable rates and reduced fees) through any public relations channels to which you have access, including your program newsletter, your local bar publication, your annual report and your community service awards program.

  • Mobilize your board, local bar leaders, and other opinion-makers in your community to get behind IOLTA and support revenue enhancement efforts.

  • If you or your board members are well connected in your local business community, use that influence to persuade banks to provide fair treatment for IOLTA accounts.
