How You Can Help

Our goal is to make sure that Louisianans of all stripes, regardless of their zip code, background, or income level have access to civil legal services that they need. The state’s dedication in funding for civil legal aid has given Louisiana the opportunity to emerge as a national leader on this issue. Now is the time to expand our investments and establish a robust civil justice system we can all be proud of. Get involved with the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) today!
