The Future of Legal Aid:
Legal Innovation for Improving Access to Justice
Wednesday, June 16, 2021
Access to Justice is not a new phenomenon, but the legal profession has yet to provide sustainable solutions to a majority of those needing legal services. This webinar will discuss Christian Legal Aid clinics' opportunity to innovate to reach and serve more of our neighbors, and will explore legal innovations around the country and what those innovations could mean for Christian Legal Aid.
Sarah Sullivan has over two decades of experience practicing law in the public interest. She currently works as the pro bono coordinator for an LSC-funded legal service program in Florida. Ms. Sulivan also founded Jericho Road Legal Service Ministry, Inc., a Christian Legal Aid clinic borne out of her calling to serve others by incorporating innovative solutions and Christian compassion to lift up the community. Most recently, Ms. Sullivan was appointed to the Special Committee on the Future of Legal Services for the Florida Bar. The committee is exploring regulatory innovation in the legal industry. Contributing insight into access to justice and legal innovation, Ms. Sullivan's inspiration from the parable of the Good Samaritan is focusing on how lawyers can not only resolve legal issues in a holistic and compassionate way, but can also be instrumental in the prevention of legal problems.
