CONFERENCE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The conference is both retrospective and prospective. The 40-year anniversary of the Legal Services Corporation demands our reflection and consideration. Our agenda seeks to weave the lessons learned from the early years of legal aid and attempt to better understand our role as a legal aid advocate in the poverty of today. Thank you for attending this important conference where together, we will continue the conversation about the new vision of free legal aid in the 21st century.
