As President & CEO of the National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA), I am honored to lead an organization charged with advancing one principle: that the quality of justice you receive should not depend on the amount of money you have.
The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) has announced a pilot project where clients, eligible for services from LSC-funded legal aid programs, will join LSC staff on visits to review the quality of the LSC funded legal aid programs.
The Foundation awarded 11 jurisdictions grants between $1.5M and $3.5M over two years to reduce their jail populations and address racial and ethnic disparities in their justice systems.
NLADA and the entire equal justice community were deeply saddened by the passing of Esther Lardent, founder of the Pro Bono Institute, NLADA leader and nationally recognized innovator in increasing access to justice for low-income people.
Federal grants can serve your clients and strengthen your organization. Join a regional training on how to apply for, win, and implement non-LSC federal funds.
Join the civil legal aid community at The Equal Justice Conference to discuss issues related to the delivery of legal services to low-income individuals.
ACCD Summer Conference will be held in Washington, DC, one day before the Community-Oriented Defender Network (COD) Conference. ACCD meeting is open to chiefs and deputy chiefs.
