You know it's a slow news day when the rural lawyer shortage makes national news
And that's what happened this morning, as NPR's morning edition picked up a story by Grant Gerlock of Harvest Public Media regarding the rural lawyer shortage and Nebraska's new effort to respond to it. I wrote a post about this new Nebraska effort just a few weeks ago. Gerlock's story, which ran on Nebraska Public Radio back in November, quotes me and references my work on the rural lawyer shortage. I was surprised to hear the story on national radio this morning, in a somewhat shortened form. Of course, the day after Christmas must be a slow news day, so perhaps not a lot of competition for content.
