The Mobile Self-Help Legal Access Center of the Ventura County Superior Court received meritorious recognition from the American Bar Association Louis M. Brown Award for Legal Access last month.

The center is a specially equipped 35-foot mobile home, which features computers, video stations, books, pamphlets and self-help instruction manuals for those who find it difficult to get to a courthouse to obtain the information to pursue their own legal resolutions.

“The Mobile Center exemplifies outreach in court services,” said John S. Skilton, chair of the ABA Committee on Delivery of Legal Services, which gives the Brown award. “This is the type of innovation that expands the availability of legal resources to the working poor, the elderly and the disabled — in short, those who need these services the most, yet are least able to otherwise gain access.”
