A central part of our strategy to increase access to justice is strengthening the work of legal advocates and volunteers. Our statewide and national programs help network the public interest legal sector, and empower advocates with resources and tools to put their skills to work for the public good.
Our programs promote collaboration within state justice communities through one-stop access to key resources for legal aid advocates and pro bono attorneys. They also connect volunteer attorneys with pro bono opportunities in their local area, and incubate new tools to expand access to legal assistance for underserved communities.
Our national programs help advocates across the country working on issues such as immigration, disaster response and veterans rights network with each other and access expertise they won’t find anywhere else. These programs also provide pathways for volunteer attorneys to get involved in some of the most pressing legal challenges of our time.
Pro Bono Manager is a cloud-hosted, mobile-responsive web application that allows law firms to more efficiently manage, promote, and grow their pro bono program, and ultimately Do More Good.
More than 60 million Americans live in rural areas with limited access to legal aid organizations. For millions of others, transportation barriers, lack of time off from work, caregiving responsibilities and other issues can be obstacles for accessing legal help. Our remote lawyering platform, Remote Legal Connect, allows legal services providers, pro bono initiatives, courts, and community partners to rapidly build and manage a legal support program regardless of location to expand the help available on issues such as consumer debt, family law, eviction and more.
