2020-21 Speak Out for Justice! Focus on Civil Legal Aid

Speak Out for Justice! Focus on Civil Legal Aid is a program of the LBF’s Education Committee. The purpose of this program is to support the LBF’s educational goals by increasing the understanding of the vital need for civil legal aid services for those who cannot afford them, as well as the need to measure the effectiveness of ongoing programs. For this program we are engaging with multiple content creators.
