Making the case for humanity

Our New Leadership Program (NLP) engages the next generation of young professionals through networking, volunteering, and fundraising events.

The Associates’ Campaign

The Associates’ Campaign has been a tradition at The Legal Aid Society for over 30 years. Led by Associates at New York City’s top law firms, the campaign brings together attorneys to engage in friendly competition and raise vital funds to support Legal Aid’s under resourced units.

Last year’s campaign was the most successful in years! Nearly 1,700 people at 28 firms raised over $423,000 for Legal Aid. These funds go a long way in providing low-income New Yorkers with the legal services they need.

Learn about this year’s campaign.

The 10th Annual NLP Winter Benefit

The 10th Annual New Leadership Program Winter Benefit was a tremendous success. We are so thankful for everyone who came to support the work of The Legal Aid Society. Together we raised over $55,000 for low-income New Yorkers.
