Kantlehner to serve on task
force for NCBA 4ALL campaign
Kantlehner will serve on the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) working group on the task force. The working group will make recommendations to the NCBA Board of Governors next year on ways to help Legal Aid of North Carolina retain lawyers by eliminating or significantly reducing law school debt.
The 4ALL campaign is designed to make legal services available to North Carolinians who are at or below the poverty line. The five-pronged effort includes educating lawyers about poverty in the state; raising awareness among legislators about the need for legal services for poor residents; a fundraising effort among NCBA members; a pro bono legal services day, set for April 4, 2008; and the LRAP effort to retain lawyers by reducing law school debt.
