Legal Services Corp. Proposed Rule on Restrictions on Criminal Representation

Here. Comment period expires Dec. 4, 2013.

The summary:

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.
