Scott Wylie, attorney and director of the Vanderburgh Community Foundation, has been named as the first full-time staff director of the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana. He will replace retiring plan administrator Beverly Corn who led the program for more than 12 years.

“We are delighted that Scott will be heading our efforts going forward,” said VLP board co-chair Vanderburgh Magistrate Judge Sheila Corcoran. “He is a national leader in the delivery of civil legal aid services and will bring decades of experience to this role.”

The Volunteer Lawyer Program provides legal services for the indigent and coordinates attorney pro bono work in the 11 counties around the Evansville metropolitan area. Corn became plan administrator about 2003 and guided the program through the Great Recession.

In December, the Indiana Bar Foundation recognized her dedication and drive by honoring Corn with the Randall T. Shepard Award for Excellence in Pro Bono.
 
Wylie is familiar with legal aid to the poor. He has been involved with the VLP since 2007 and serves on the boards of the Indiana Bar Foundation, Indiana Legal Services and the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance.

Also, he was recently appointed to the Indiana Coalition for Court Access, created by the Indiana Supreme Court to review and coordinate civil legal aid programs.
