Welcome to the web site of the DC Consortium of Legal Services Providers. The Consortium is a coalition of  29 member organizations, all of which provide direct legal services to low-income DC residents. The Consortium is led by Co-Chairs Chinh Le (Legal Director, The Legal Aid Society) and Rochanda Hiligh-Thomas (Legal Director, Advocates for Justice and Education). The Consortium's Steering Committee is comprised of the Consortium Co-Chairs, as well as four other representatives from member organizations: Moses Cook (Executive Director, DC Law Students in Court); Rhonda Cunningham Holmes (Deputy Director, The Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights); Hannah Lieberman (Executive Director, Neighborhood Legal Services Program); and Tina Nelson (Managing Attorney, Legal Counsel for the Elderly).


General meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, from 9:30 - 11:30 am, at Venable LLP (575 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC). The remaining meeting in 2015 is November 19 and has been temporarily relocated to AARP, 601 E Street, NW, Washington, DC. The list of meeting dates for 2016 will be posted by December. Additional information about the Consortium and its activities can be found in the Library.
