The Office of Civil Legal Aid (OCLA) is an independent agency of the judicial branch of government. OCLA is responsible for ensuring indigent persons have access to the civil justice system. OCLA contracts for civil legal services for indigent persons and does not provide direct representation of clients. OCLA reports quarterly to the civil legal aid oversight committee and the Supreme Court's Access to Justice Board on the use of state funds for legal aid. It also reports biennially on the status of access to the civil justice system for low-income people eligible for state-funded legal aid.
