Rural Education and Access to Lawyers (REAL), British Columbia
Initiative Canada http://www.cba.org/bc/initiatives/main/real.aspx
The initiative is a coordinated set of programs aimed at tackling the current and projected shortage of lawyers serving rural areas and small communities in British Columbia. The initiative is designed to encourage law students to gain legal experience and education in rural areas and small communities throughout the province in the expectation that this exposure will lead to the attraction of new lawyers to rural communities. The benefits of the REAL initiative to lawyers include funding for summer student placements in rural and small communities and professional support from the CBABC Regional Legal Careers Officer to assist with the recruitment, hiring and retention of students and young lawyers in rural areas and small communities.

The Co-operative Legal Services Delivery Program
Program Other http://www.legalaid.nsw.gov.au/what-we-do/community-partnerships/coopera...
The program was introduced as an attempt to maximize legal service delivery to people living in disadvantaged communities, particularly those in rural, regional and remote areas. The delivery of legal services is achieved through a partnership of government, community and private sector providers. The program is based on the theory that better coordination and cooperation in the planning and delivery of legal services will enhance the efficient and effective use of scarce resources and improve access to justice for disadvantaged people.
