December 27, 2022 Produced by Aden Choate We've talked about food deserts — towns or neighborhoods lacking fresh groceries. But there's increasing attention to legal deserts, and the Illinois State Bar Association is aiming to bring lawyers to parts of Illinois where people can struggle to find help in court. It's called the Rural Practice Fellowship, and it was recently profiled by reporter Collin Schopp at Peoria Public Radio. This segment originally aired Oct. 10, 2022.
