President Donald Trump’s proposed 2018 budget cuts all federal funding for the Legal Services Corp. (LSC), the largest source of funding for U.S. legal aid services, prompting great concern from the legal industry about the need to support legal aid efforts.

Bar associations around the country, however, have long sought means to bolster member support for legal assistance projects. These organizations have spent the last few years planning and developing technology to better encourage attorneys to take on pro bono opportunities to support legal assistance projects and foster a more resilient legal services delivery system.
