    Sec. 10. Pilot programs.

    (a) The General Assembly encourages the Supreme Court to develop: (i) a pilot program to create a statewide military personnel and veterans' legal assistance hotline and coordinated network of legal support resources; and (ii) a pilot program to provide court-based legal assistance within a circuit court in each appellate district of this State.

    (b) The General Assembly recommends that the rules developing the pilot programs:

        (1) provide intake, screening, and varying levels of

    legal assistance to ensure that the parties served by these programs have meaningful access to justice;

    with providing the services described in paragraph (1) of this subsection; and

        (3) guard against the involuntary waiver of rights or

    disposition by default.
