Private Attorney Involvement

LSC grantees leverage federal funding and maximize the number of clients they are able to serve by involving private attorneys in the delivery of legal services, primarily on a volunteer basis. LSC requires its grantees to spend at least 12.5% of their basic field funding on Private Attorney Involvement (PAI). This initiative is meant to encourage the involvement of private attorneys in the delivery of legal assistance to eligible clients. Nationally, family, housing, and consumer cases are the three largest substantive topic areas of PAI case closures. Most PAI cases are closed with limited attorney involvement. This dashboard provides more detailed information related to PAI. Please note, data is only available for LSC Basic Field grantees.
