Connecticut Law Tribune Article on newly formed Modest/Moderate Means Workgroup

The Connecticut Law Tribune has included an article entitled, “State Ponders Ways To Offer Low-Cost Legal Services” in the current issue (Vol. 40, No. 15) on the creation of a new Modest/Moderate Means workgroup. The Workgroup on Modest/Moderate Means was created in January at the recommendation of the Judicial Branch's Access to Justice Program.

Comprised of nine members, the work group is co-chaired by former New Haven Legal Assistance Association director and Past President of the NHCBA Pat Kaplan and NHCBA Executive Committee Member Christopher Nelson, a partner in Nelson Votto in New Haven. Read the article here.

Fair Haven Fitness Program

The NHCBA’s Public Service Committee is currently partnering with Fair Haven K-8 School on a four week “Fair Haven Fitness Program” for approximately thirty school children in the 6th to 8th grades at the school. The weekly course runs on Thursday afternoons this March and begins with nutritionist (Jeffrey Weaver far left in photo) discussing eating habits, and giving suggestions on nutrition, exercise and related issues. The kids then engage in an aerobic workout with a fitness trainer (Terrance Gass second from right in photo) for 45 minutes. NHCBA staff and attorney volunteers are on site participating in the workout, helping the kids learn the exercises and encouraging them to keep moving! The fitness trainer takes questions at the end as everyone cools down.
