          One of the initiatives that already is getting much of James Silkenat’s attention is the Legal Access Job Corps, which essentially would seek to address two key concerns currently facing the legal profession: the unmet legal needs of disadvantaged communities and the oversupply of lawyers—many of them unemployed—in some regions of the United States.
