The Legal Services Corporation provides funding to hundreds of local legal aid offices throughout the country to help those organizations provide basic legal assistance to those facing the most fundamental of legal problems: eviction, foreclosure, disaster relief, domestic violence, veterans benefits, divorce, child custody and consumer debt. President Trump’s draft budget proposes eliminating all funding for the LSC, thereby removing an important resource for the poorest members of our society and increasing the already intense burden on our state court systems. This panel will discuss the nature of the work performed by LSC, the context for this proposed cut, and engage in brainstorming on avenues of action to increase awareness of the importance of civil legal aid.
Lunch will be provided.
