The Legal Project: Our Mission
The Legal Project believes that all people, regardless of income, gender, disability, race, religion, age, sexual orientation or ethnicity should have access to legal services. This belief reflects a deep commitment to fairness and equal justice under the law. Based upon these beliefs, the mission of The Legal Project is to make the law more accessible to those in need, to increase the legal community's involvement in pro bono work; and to serve as a resource on legal issues. We feel a special commitment to women and others who may have difficulty in obtaining legal assistance.

Where would YOU go for help if you had a legal problem?
What if you had no money?
What would you do then?
The Legal Project needs your help. Your donation can help ensure that hardworking people who earn too much "on paper" for government funded legal services have somewhere to turn.
