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.
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.
Each summer, members and supporters of the Community-Oriented Defender Network gather for an intensive series of sessions to interact, connect, and learn.
