2018 Associates Campaign.png

Under the leadership of Associates at leading New York law firms, The Legal Aid Society’s annual Associates’ Campaign raises awareness and vital funds for The Legal Aid Society’s Civil Practice. Individual gifts raised through this campaign account for nearly one-third of all individual contributions raised for our Civil Practice each year, which relies heavily on private funding to provide legal assistance to the most vulnerable New Yorkers, helping them obtain and maintain the basic necessities of life.

As our clients face new challenges in an ever changing legal landscape, it is our hope that through the success of our 2018 Associates' Campaign that we can raise the vital funds that support our critical work and reach even more New Yorkers in need. Working across all five boroughs, our Civil Practice offers essential legal assistance to thousands of New Yorkers every year. With 22 specialized units, our staff helps our clients with any legal challenge they may face: from immigrant children seeking to secure their legal status, to hardworking New Yorkers searching for an affordable apartment. On the front lines and behind the scenes, we work for our clients to ensure that no New Yorker is denied access to justice.

2018 Associates' Campaign

The 2018 Associates' Campaign saw The Legal Aid Society and its law firm partners reach new heights. Thanks to the hard work of firm captains and New Leadership Program Board Members, this year's campaign was officially the most successful in the organization's history - raising over $428,000 from over 2,140 legal professionals from 31 law firms.
