Pro Bono Law Reform

The Legal Aid Society represents clients in class action litigation and policy advocacy, and provides public education and training in the pursuit of justice for large numbers of our clients. We believe in comprehensive legal representation, complementing our assistance to clients in individual cases with broader efforts on their behalf in class action litigation; before government agencies and public officials; and in the media.

Complex affirmation litigation, which develops professional skill sets and serves the public good, is a highly sought-after pro bono opportunity. Legal Aid co-counsels new cases with a participating firm, which assumes responsibility for the expenses of the litigation. The retainer agreement between Legal Aid and the participating law firm addresses this and other issues governing the co-counsel relationship.
