LBF Creates a new Funding Category Self-Represented Litigants

Louisiana courts and legal service programs are struggling to meet the increasing needs of self-represented litigants (SRL). This demand threatens the fair administration of justice across our state. To help ensure equal access and justice for all, LBF created a new funding category for nonprofit organizations to develop innovative solutions to assist and empower individuals to gain meaningful access to our courts. These initiatives include self-help centers, pro se clinics, unbundled legal services, mediation programs, and much more.
