The Boards of Directors of five more LSC-funded programs have adopted resolutions aimed at increasing the involvement of private attorneys in the delivery of legal services to their clients, bringing to 56 the total number of programs who have adopted such resolutions. The five programs are:

  • DNA-People's Legal Services of Arizona
  • KansasLegal Services
  • Legal Services of Northern Michigan
  • MidPenn Legal Services of Pennsylvania
  • Northeast New JerseyLegal Services

LSC is encouraging all program Boards of Directors to adopt pro bono resolutions modeled after one adopted by LSC's Board in April 2007. Urging programs to adopt local resolutions is a key element of LSC's private attorney involvement action plan, entitled "Help Close the Justice Gap, Unleash the Power of Pro Bono."
