The Vermont Bar Foundation supports "access to justice" by funding programs like Vermont Legal Aid and Law Line, which provide legal services to low income families.
But, like so many organizations, the Bar Foundation has found itself with less money to give out in the past few years, while the need for the kind of legal services it helps fund has risen.
Vermont Supreme Court Associate Justice John Dooley is a member of the board of directors of the Vermont Bar Foundation. He spoke with VPR's Jane Lindholm about the financial challenges faced by the organization.
