Evan Smith is a public interest attorney and the Director of Advocacy for AppalReD, a nonprofit that gives free legal services in rural Appalachia. We spoke about what it’s like to work in rural America, the legal issues people face in that part of the country, and what we can do to help.
In full disclosure, the interviewer, David Raban, worked for AppalReD for ten weeks this past summer and was paid for that work through the University of Chicago Law School and the Rural Summer Legal Corps, a collaboration between Equal Justice Works and the Legal Services Corporation.
