Get Involved

 

We are fortunate to work with amazing volunteers. Hear from a few of them and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Judith French in our new video, produced by the Ohio State Bar Association!

80% of the civil legal needs of the poor go unmet. With LASC’s staff resources at a low, we draw upon the time and talent of volunteers — attorneys, paralegals, law students, undergraduates, and community members — who can help us ensure Access to Justice for civil litigants in our community.

While the LASC has the goal of Pursuing Justice and Changing Lives, this challenge is not ours alone.  Paragraph 6 of the Preamble to the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct charges all attorneys to

“Be mindful of deficiencies in the administration of justice and of the fact that the poor, and sometimes persons who are not poor, cannot afford adequate legal assistance.

Therefore, all lawyers should devote professional time and resources and use civic influence to ensure equal access to our system of justice for all those who because of economic or social barriers cannot afford or secure adequate legal counsel.”

Will you join us?

The needs of the poor often go unmet.
