Does evolt.org need an attorney?

Since we don't have any $$ I wonder if there is something else we can
offer in exchange for some basic services?

If this is the sort of question that needs to go to another list, let
me know (or forward it and cc me).

Here's what I'll offer, if there is interest or need (in a general or
specific area) I am willing to try to network a bit with law faculty
at Lewis & Clark College to find out if there is an attorney
somewhere willing to donate some basic services and/or advice to

It's a long shot I guess, but it can't hurt to ask?
Our law school faculty include at least one expert in "cyberspace law."
I'm not sure what our legal needs are (or what they might be in the future).
But my sense is that we *do* have legal needs.

If it sounds like something the org is interested in pursuing, how
should I proceed?  Poke around for interest and report back?  Or
first have a clear idea of what we need and/or can offer in return?

you all let me know what you think, etc.  Maybe it's premature
thinking, maybe not.

I would love to help the org get strong  (or at least informed)
legally in hopes that the rest will come that much easier (or at
least with more clarity).
