Lawyers serving the public good.

Kentucky Volunteer Lawyer Program

The Kentucky VLP seeks to increase and strengthen pro bono programs in Kentucky's four (4) civil legal aid programs throught the development of a statewide campaign and recruitment program, implementation of strategies to increase legal services to the poor, CLE trainings and opportunities, and recognition programs.

"Malpractice insurance is offered for volunteer lawyers " states "no" but that is incorrect to some extent. The 4 local pro bono programs for Kentucky, which manage referrals for our organization, provide malpractice coverage but not all programs provide primary. Some of the programs provide secondary coverage.
