Legal Aid Services are nonprofit corporations that provide free legal assistance to low income clients with non-criminal problems. The kinds of cases each legal aid office handles varies somewhat. Clients and Legal Aid staff in each community where there is a Legal Aid office have worked together to determine what would be the most important legal assistance for low-income people in their area.

LSC is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation. Established in 1974, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that promotes equal access to justice and provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. LSC distributes about 95 percent of its total funding to 135 independent nonprofit legal aid programs with more than 900 offices throughout the nation. LSC promotes equal access to justice by awarding grants to legal services providers through a competitive grants process; conducting compliance reviews and program visits to oversee program quality and compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements as well as restrictions that accompany LSC funding; and by providing training and technical assistance to programs. LSC encourages programs to leverage limited resources by partnering and collaborating with other funders of civil legal aid, including state and local governments, IOLTA, access to justice commissions, the private bar, philanthropic foundations, and the business community. The Corporation is headed by a bipartisan board of directors whose 11 members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.
