Modest Means 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 Southwest Louisiana Law Center (“Law Center”), LIFT Fellows are working to help address the unmet civil legal needs in the Lake Charles area.

The LIFT Incubator Project at the Law Center is for new or transitioning attorneys starting their own solo law practice in Lake Charles. During the 18-month program, incubator attorneys receive office space, supplies, and resources. The attorneys also receive training and mentorship as they work alongside experienced Law Center legal practitioners. In exchange for the training and incubation of their practice, attorneys agree to provide pro bono representation in cases referred by the Law Center.
