  • What happened to the old Best Practices Corner?
  • Where can I find more training resources?
  • How can I submit an idea for an MPI post?

LSC overhauled its Best Practices Corner in 2020 to transform it into a more useful, accessible, and attractive resource for busy legal aid lawyers. Model Practices & Innovations (MPI) aims to collect and share well-researched projects and policies as part of LSC’s mission to help grantee provide high-quality legal assistance to low-income people.

Visit the LSC Training Page to browse comprehensive Training and Technical Assistance practices, tools, and resources. These resources include modules, presentation slides, sample policies, and more.
