What does being a LAAC organizational member, associate member, or individual supporter mean?
It means you get a wide range of support for the amazing work you do.
And that you are part of a collaborative, statewide community of legal aid organizations and advocates.
Any IOLTA-funded legal services organization is eligible for LAAC Membership, and non-IOLTA funded legal services organizations are eligible for Associate Membership.
Not a part of a LAAC member organization, but interested in supporting LAAC and receiving some of the benefits of membership? You can become an Individual Supporter by giving $75/year.
