Working with all three branches of government this past winter, Tim Fisher helped engineer a legislative remedy based on an increase in court filing fees, which will cover the next three years. In addition, Fisher and the Bar Foundation have a "consciousness raising" role of explaining the significance of the legal system to the general public. This effort ranges from law-themed high school essay contests on topics like bullying and "sexting" of nude photos, to video history projects and seminars chronicling the advances of women and minority lawyers in the state.
