State Bar Foundation Seeks Project Applications


Driskill, Matt, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma Bar Foundation is calling for applications from organizations and individuals who wish to acquire funding for projects which would improve the administration of justice, provide legal services to the poor or instigate programs for the benefit of the public in any area of law.

The foundation made the announcement because even though it had already designated $90,000 in 1987 for law-related projects, it found itself in the unique position of having an additional $90,000 available due to the Interest on Lawyers Trust Accounts (IOLTA) program.

The "Blessings of Liberty" exhibit is comprised of posters featuring key events leading to the creation of the Constitution, a recreation of the document itself and photographs and quotes from George Washington, James Madison and other leaders who played important roles in the event. . .

- The American Bar Association (ABA) has urged Congress to delay for 24 months the implementation of the U.S. Sentencing Commission's guidelines that are scheduled to take effect in Novermber.

ABA spokesman Samuel Buffone told members of a House Judiciary subcommittee that while the association strongly supports adoption of a sentencing guideline system, "the hasty, eleventh hour preparation and release of the final guidelines, which included significant changes from earlier drafts, without an opportunity for public comment or revision, has resulted in an incomplete" and untested set of guidelines. …
