Marilyn Harp

Kansas Legal Services, Inc.
Executive Director
Topeka, KS
Marilyn Harp is the Executive Director of Kansas Legal Services, a statewide provider of civil legal services to low income people. She graduated from the University of Kansas Law School in 1979 and has been with Kansas Legal Services since then. She has represented thousands of low income persons during her career. Understanding that Kansas Legal Services would not likely have the staff resources to meet the legal needs of all 183,000 low income Kansans, she became interested in the opportunity that technology provided. This led her to learn about programming in resources that translate legal forms in to a format that works well for unrepresented persons. Self-represented litigants in Kansas annually print over 8,000 documents annually using guided interviews created by KLS staff and volunteers. This puts Kansas in the top 10 states nationally for documents prepared using this technology.
