Legal Community Supports Funding Legal Services Corporation
PBI thanks and recognizes the 190+ chief legal officers and 150+ law firm leaders who signed letters stating their organizations’ support for the Legal Services Corporation. Congress recently approved continued funding at current levels through the remainder of the fiscal year. This is good news for LSC, but the current administration’s proposed defunding still looms. We must remain vigilant and fight for civil legal aid for the poor and disadvantaged. Read: Letter from Law Firm Leaders and Letter from Chief Legal Officers.
