LJAP Committee

The work of the LJAP would not be possible without the tireless service of the volunteers who serve on the Lawyers Assistance Program Committee and in other volunteer capacities across the state.  These volunteers; practicing lawyers, sitting Judges, law students, law school faculty, business men and women give of their time and talents so graciously, and do such meaningful work.  The LJAP could not function without all that the volunteers do.
