The commission's report said the West Virginia State Bar, Legal Aid of West Virginia and West Virginia Senior Legal Aid can work together to develop a strong pro bono program. It also mentioned the possibility of a pro bono summit.
The commission did not make specific recommendations for assistance for the disabled, senior citizens, workers' compensation and veterans whose needs aren't met by the Veteran's Administration. The report said more review is needed in these areas.
For the mentally disabled, the commission said there needs to be more review on the creation of community-based treatment as opposed to institutional treatment and access to guardianship records for advocates.
Areas of review for the disabled also included representation for people involuntarily committed and accessibility to courthouses and parking lots.
Last, the commission said more review is needed for further training for court personnel to assist people representing themselves along with the disabled, seniors and domestic violence victims.
The commission says this will set a foundation to ensure "meaningful access to the civil justice system."
