Restrictions on Legal Assistance With Respect to Criminal Proceedings
Document Number: 2013-26102
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-11-04
Agency: Legal Services Corporation, Agencies and Commissions
This proposed rule updates the Legal Services Corporation (LSC or Corporation) regulation on legal assistance with respect to criminal proceedings. The Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 (TLOA) amended the LSC Act to authorize LSC funds to be used for representation of persons charged with criminal offenses in tribal courts. This proposed rule will bring the regulations into alignment with the amended LSC Act. The proposed rule will also revise the conditions under which LSC recipients can accept or decline tribal court appointments to represent defendants in criminal proceedings.
