Our Partners in the Legal Community

The Pro Bono Project. In four of the parishes SLLS serves, private attorneys volunteer to take some of our clients' cases free of charge. These attorneys are assigned cases by the Pro Bono Project, which recruits the volunteers and tries to match cases with attorneys according to their location and interest. The Pro Bono Project also provides attorneys who interview and advise clients of our services.

The Baton Rouge Bar Foundation. The Baton Rouge Bar Foundation also supports SLLS by recruiting volunteer attorneys to accept some client cases free of charge.
The Louisiana State Bar Association (LSBA). Every attorney in the state belongs to the LSBA. Through its Access to Justice Program, the LSBA supports many projects designed to aid legal services programs in Louisiana, including SLLS. Examples include projects involving technology, training of staff and clients, and bringing together many members of the legal profession interested in service to the poor.

The Martinet Society of Greater Baton Rouge. This group also accepts pro bono case referrals.

The Louisiana Civil Justice Center and the New Orleans Family Justice Center. They support a pilot incubator project providing up to 30 hours per month of pro bono assistance in domestic violence and family law cases for the greater New Orleans area.
