O'Melveny’s David Lash authored the October 24, 2014, Daily Journal article, "Access to Justice Isn't About Handouts." In the piece, Lash spotlights the importance of providing legal aid to impoverished populations in order to protect their basic human rights and liberties. “The judicial system, more than any other aspect of our democracy, responds to the needs of those who need it most,” Lash said in the article. “Access to justice is a transformative engine of social change. But only lawyers can make that engine work.”
