Please join us for this funders-only briefing and roundtable discussion covering two new pivotal studies that shed light on the justice gap in California, and the recruitment & retention crisis currently

facing civil legal service providers in our state.​

PRESENTERS

Salena Copeland, Executive Director of the Legal Aid Association of California will provide brief overview of legal aid funding in California, as well as a substantive briefing of LAAC's study focusing on the recruitment & retention of civil legal aid attorneys in California. 

Hellen Hong, Director of Access & Inclusion with The State Bar of California will present findings from a new California Justice Gap study, which will improve our understanding of current legal services needs and opportunities for helping to close the justice gap.    

The significant need for civil legal assistance among Californians—and the gap between that need and the resources to meet it—has never been fully measured. Until now...

 

The LSFN invites you to be among the first to hear the results of an innovative first-ever study, conducted by the State Bar of California, that examines the justice gap in California.  Additionally, the latest data regarding the recruitment & retention crisis currently facing civil legal service providers in the state will be presented.

 

Participants of this funders-only briefing, will have the opportunity to discuss the results of these pivotal studies and will walkaway with data-driven funding strategies they can implement to help ensure access for every Californian.      ​

 

As part of its mission and commitment to advancing access, the State Bar throughout 2019 has conducted the California Justice Gap Study, the first of its kind. The study hopes to improve the broader understanding of current legal services needs and opportunities for helping to close the justice gap. The California study evaluated how the costs of legal education affect access and examined potentially innovative remedies to this problem, such as loan forgiveness incentives, that could influence the supply side of the justice gap.​
