Over one hundred knowledgeable representatives from the legal and paralegal fields; the Judiciary; law schools; professionals in the aging, disability, caregiving, and health networks; state and local governments; and consumers were identified from across the State as the Initiative's consulting Think Group.

The Think Group convened for an all-day work session. The Group was divided into 10 work groups, at which the members drew upon their own experiences, training, and expertise to suggest strategies, steps, policies, and activities that would advance the Initiative's goals.

The 10 work groups' substantial output was compiled and organized into a practical resource entitled, Think Group Report—Strategies for Action: Advancing the Legal Services Initiative's Goals, which the Think Group submitted to the Initiative's Partnership members.

The Initiative's Partnership, together with Think Group members and other interested individuals and organizations, will use the findings from the Report of Findings: Seven Statewide Surveys and the Think Group Report as a resource for considering strategies to increase the availability, affordability, and accessibility of legal assistance for older adults, people of all ages with disabilities, and caregivers.
