PROJECT GOALS

The goals of the Law School Consortium Project are to:

  • facilitate communication between and among law school members;
  • aggregate, analyze, and disseminate data regarding best practices in ensuring access to justice;
  • support members in their capacity-building efforts;
  • promote the Project's mission and identify/recruit new members; and
  • develop and share expertise regarding access to justice best practices.

MEMBER LAW SCHOOLS' GOALS

The goals of the member schools are to:

  • increase access of low/low-middle income communities to law as a resource for advancing community interests;
  • help make community-based law practices more sustainable economically, professionally, and spiritually;
  • change the mission of law schools to include extending legal education and providing resources to communities and practitioners serving communities;
  • establish relationships between the practitioner networks established by each member school and their respective law schools – integrate the networks into their law schools; and
  • redefine the role of lawyers.
