Good news from LAPP!

Director Nina Vinik sends us this information about the great work being done by the Legal Assistance Partnership Project:

The Litigation Assistance Partnership Project (LAPP), a project of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation, matches pro bono resources of private firms with legal service and public interest programs across the country. LAPP's core function is to identify and place significant pro bono litigation with private law firms nationwide. These are major, complex and often time-consuming cases that require resources unavailable to public interest programs. LAPP works with programs and issues that involve subject areas not handled by other national public interest programs and clearinghouses. LAPP also serves rural programs without local pro bono resources for major litigation and finds out-of-state attorneys when necessary because of local limitations. LAPP is meant to complement, not replace, other pro bono resources. LAPP was created in 1989 and is a project of the Section of Litigation's Pro Bono and Public Interest Practice Committee.

Here are some recent results from LAPP cases.
