About Together Lawyers Can
Kentucky is facing an unprecedented challenge. Over 4,500 Kentuckians (as of 4/30/2020) have been infected with the coronavirus and thousands more have been directly impacted in the economic aftershock of the crisis.
Kentucky’s legal aid programs have launched Together Lawyers Can to address the anticipated rise in numbers and need for civil legal aid. Together Lawyers Can is a state-wide pro bono based program designed to connect Kentucky lawyers from across the Commonwealth with our neighbors in crisis due to the pandemic.
Join the team and TOGETHER LAWYERS CAN help our neighbors, make a difference, and make #TeamKentucky strong.
