Legal Services of Southern Piedmont has operated an active Pro Bono Program since its inception in 1967. Since 2002, the Pro Bono Program has been run jointly with LSSP and Legal Aid of North Carolina, Charlotte, as well as participating in joint CLE activities. Now, the joint LSSP/LANC Mecklenburg Access to Justice Pro Bono Program is one of the largest in the state. Your commitment to giving time and energy to help us serve more clients can change the lives of those in need.
