We deliver justice in every borough, working tirelessly to make our city a better place.
The Legal Aid Society is built upon one simple but powerful belief: that no New Yorker should be denied the right to equal justice.
Every day, in courthouses and communities across the city, we advocate for the rights of all New Yorkers. Start here to see how we can help you.
As the world comes together on November 30th for Giving Tuesday, a Global Day of Giving, let’s show that New York is committed to justice for all its people.
New York City is facing compounding crises. A pandemic, a national reckoning over racial justice, looming mass evictions. Now, as we have always done in times of crisis, we are fighting to keep our city safe.
The annual Associates’ Campaign is one of the largest fundraising efforts undertaken by The Legal Aid Society. Every year, this initiative accounts for nearly one-third of all individual contributions made in support of our work.
The Legal Aid Society works throughout New York City to ensure everyone has access to justice. Our expert teams work across practice areas on nearly every area of law that impacts New Yorkers.
At The Legal Aid Society collaborations with our communities fuel the work we do in each and every courtroom in New York City, and inform our policy and law reform efforts to benefit all New Yorkers.
Every individual who works with The Legal Aid Society is an essential part of our mission to deliver equal justice and racial equity. We are united by our values, and we work tenaciously to ensure that our clients receive the very best.
Every day, The Legal Aid Society changes the lives of our clients with the help of our generous supporters. Stand with us.
