Des Moines, IA (November 13, 2018) — ARAG®, a leading provider of legal insurance, announced today that Jean Clauson has joined the State Bar of California Task Force on Access Through Innovation of Legal Services.

Clauson, ARAG legal industry advocate and manager of the attorney network development team, will work with other legal industry leaders on the task force to identify potential ways California can enhance access and delivery of legal services through technology.

“Jean is a tireless advocate of access to justice and her work reflects ARAG’s belief that everyone deserves affordable access to legal services,” says ARAG President and CEO David Murray. “Her appointment to the California task force will play a major role in our continued commitment to furthering this mission across the nation.”

Over the next year, the task force will work to review current regulations that may be limiting access to legal services and identify how artificial intelligence and alternative delivery models could impact not only access to legal services but the practice of law in California.

“Through my work with ARAG and as past president of Group Legal Services, I have seen firsthand how important it will be to incorporate technology-driven delivery systems in order to provide Americans the legal help they need,” says Clauson. “I’m looking forward to working with this inspiring group of legal leaders to put together a proposal that will benefit both attorneys and clients.”
