Domestic Violence Project

Legal Innovators for Tomorrow (LIFT) is a legal incubator program designed to address the legal needs of the underserved and underrepresented by supporting new lawyers build viable and sustainable public interest-focused law firms. Through a collaborative project with the New Orleans Family Justice Center and Southeast Louisiana Legal Services, LIFT Fellows are working to help address the unmet civil legal needs of domestic violence victims.

 


The LIFT Incubator Project at the Family Justice Center is for new or transitioning attorneys starting their own solo, small firm, or nonprofit practice in the Greater New Orleans area. During the 18-month program, incubator attorneys receive subsidized office space, supplies, and resources. The attorneys also receive training and mentorship as they work alongside experienced Southeast Louisiana Legal Services legal practitioners. In exchange for the training and incubation of their practice, attorneys will agree to provide pro bono representation domestic violence victims.
