2017 Annual Report Justice Gap

In June, LSC released a new study of America’s “justice gap”—the difference between the civil legal needs of low-income Americans and the resources available to meet them. The Justice Gap: Measuring the Unmet Civil Legal Needs of Low-Income JGAmericans, the first such study since 2009, describes and analyzes the volume of civil legal needs faced by low-income Americans and assesses the extent to which they seek and receive help. Its findings paint a stark picture of the overwhelming need for civil legal help in the country.

Report of the Pro Bono Task Force

In March 2011, our Board of Directors formed the Pro Bono Task Force to address the current crisis in legal services, where at least 50 percent of eligible low-income individuals seeking help from our grantees are turned away due to insufficient resources and 80 percent of civil legal needs are unmet.

After a year of research, the Task Force released the Report of the Pro Bono Task Force. This report included recommendations to increase the number of pro bono attorneys and other volunteers who are available to provide legal aid for low-income people. One key recommendation from the report was a request for LSC to create a Pro Bono Innovation Fund in order to encourage new ideas for engaging pro bono assistance and to narrow the justice gap.
