Gibson Dunn is participating for the first year ever in the Associates' Campaign to raise money for the Legal Aid Society!
The Legal Aid Society has been a long time Gibson Dunn pro bono partner. It is a private, not-for-profit legal services organization, the oldest and largest in the nation, dedicated since 1876 to providing quality legal representation to low-income New Yorkers. It is dedicated to one simple but powerful belief: that no New Yorker should be denied access to justice because of poverty.
The Society handles 300,000 individual cases and matters annually and provides a comprehensive range of legal services in three areas: the Civil, Criminal and Juvenile Rights Practices. Unlike the Society's Criminal and Juvenile Rights Practices, which are constitutionally mandated and supported by government, the Civil Practice relies heavily on private contributions.
Please join us in supporting this great organization and visit http://www.legal-aid.org/en/home.aspx for more information about the Legal Aid Society!
