The New Jersey Law Journal’s On the Move column today featured news of Angelo J. Genova’s election as the President of the Legal Services Foundation of Essex County. LSFEC was formed in 1982 in response to federal budget cuts imposed on the Legal Services Corporation. Since that time, it has been raising funds from the private bar and distributing such funds to public interest organizations in the community, including Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), the Education Law Center, Essex County Legal Aid, Essex-Newark Legal Services and, since 1999, Volunteer Lawyers for Justice, a program of LSFEC. Mr. Genova will serve a two year term.
