Each year in March our annual LSFN Signature Event brings together over a hundred individuals from the funder, academic, government and legal services fields who are passionate about improving access to justice. Like many other non-profits organizations, COVID-19 has greatly impacted our work and required us to think more intently about the delivery of our services. 

 

Rather than try to present our traditional Signature Event program online, we’ve opted to morph our format. This year instead of hearing a keynote speaker, we will bring together several leaders from the public interest sector to share insights and observations about how COVID has impacted their work, the communities they serve and the legal services community can “build back better”. Our format will be 6-8 presentations, each lasting 5-10min in length.

ABOUT THE EVENT /


 

Each year in March our annual LSFN Signature Event brings together over a hundred individuals from the funder, academic, government and legal services fields who are passionate about improving access to justice. Like many other non-profits organizations, COVID-19 impacted our 2020 event. Like many others, we too thought that by September it would be reasonable to hold our event in-person. Like many others, over the summer we had to revisit our plans (again). Rather than try to present to our traditional Signature Event program online, we’ve opted to morph our format.

 

This year instead of hearing a keynote speaker, we will bring together several leaders from the public interest sector to share insights and observations about how COVID has impacted their work, the communities they serve and the legal services community can “build back better”. Our format will be 6-8 presentations, each lasting 5-10min in length. 

 

We hope that you'll join us for our 2020 Signature Event, where we'll celebrate our communities' accomplishments, share what we've learned, and ready ourselves for the road ahead. 

Each year the LSFN facilitates or highlights several events to help educate our community and bring together those with a shared interest in supporting legal services, as we believe these organizations are a critical tool to use to address poverty alleviation.  Visit the LSFN website to learn more.
