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 Tina Nelson (Managing Attorney, Legal Counsel for the Elderly) and Chinh Le (Legal Director, The Legal Aid Society). 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); Rochanda Hiligh-Thomas (Legal Director, Advocates for Justice and Education); and Hannah Lieberman (Executive Director, Neighborhood Legal Services Program).


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 meetings in 2015 are set for: April 16; May 21; June 18; July 16; August 20; September 17; October 15; November 19; and December 17.  Additional information about the Consortium and its activities can be found in the Library.
