LawHelp.org has been created for people living on low-incomes and the legal organizations that serve them. LawHelp.org provides referrals to local legal aid and public interest law offices, basic information about legal rights, court forms, self-help information, court information, links to social service agencies, and more in your state. LawHelp.org includes a network of 25 statewide legal information portals built on the LawHelp.org platform. LawHelp.org was developed and is maintained by Pro Bono Net in partnership with hundreds of nonprofit legal aid, pro bono, court-based programs and libraries across the country. LawHelp.org launched in 2001 with support from the Legal Services Corporation and the Open Society Institute. In 2007, it was recognized with a Webby Award for Best Law Site. The Spanish version of LawHelp.org was launched in 2012 in partnership with the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York and LawHelp.org/NY, with support from LSC’s Technology Initiative Grant program.
