New York's chief judge is looking at corporate in-house lawyers to help fill the need for legal services for those who can't afford it.

Judge Jonathan Lippman has named a new committee to examine ways some 9,000 in-house lawyers who are not now admitted to practice law in New York can help meet the legal needs of the state's poor.
