ABOUT THE EVENT /

 

Join us for 4th annual legal services funders network Signature Event. Each year the LSFN puts on 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.

2018 Keynote Speaker, Eva Paterson, will present 'From the War on Poverty to the War on the Poor', providing insight on the history of implicit bias and its impact on the civil & criminal justice systems, the importance of access to justice, and the roles legal service professionals and funders can play.
 

Our annual Signature Event is purposely open to a wide community, including legal service funders, NGOs, CBOs, law students, attorneys, judges, court staff, and other interested in civil legal aid.
