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.
The Other "PPP": Public & Private Partnerships in the Time of COVID
Please join us for our 2020 Signature Event, where we will bring together 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”.
