Join legal services attorney Lynn Drysdale and solo-practitioner James Kowalski for a FREE webinar on the mutual benefits of legal services and private attorney partnerships.

  • If you are a legal services attorney, you will learn how to recruit and communicate effectively with private attorneys to make a larger impact for consumer clients against illegal practices. You will also learn how working with private attorneys can benefit your legal aid program through potential cy pres awards, the opportunity to work with experienced litigators, and the opportunity to utilize private attorneys as educational resources for substantive and practice advice.
  • If you are a private attorney, you will learn how to locate and build a relationship with a legal aid program that is right for you. You will also learn how working with legal services offices can increase your exposure, cement your reputation in your community, and give you more experience with a new area of law that you may be able to add to your practice.
