The Law School Consortium Project
Access to Justice for All, Not Just the Wealthy
The LCSP has demonstrated that by supporting solo and small-firm practitioners who share a desire to provide affordable legal assistance, law schools can enable lawyers to have satisfying and economically viable careers while serving populations in need. And, by supporting these practitioners, law schools are effectively building the field of public interest law.
Keeping pace with the changing regulations and compliance needs, Tides managed the LSCP’s initial and annual filings and fees with the U.S Internal Revenue Service, California Board of Equalization, California Attorney General, California Franchise Tax Board, California Secretary of State, and the City and County of San Francisco.
“It gives me great peace of mind to know that our legal issues and government compliance processes are being overseen and managed by Tides Center,” said Lovely Dhillon, Esq., director of the LSCP. “The Law School Consortium Project operates with a staff of two, and both of us can be fully dedicated to doing outreach, building relationships, creating and distributing resources—in short, making our project a success—because we are part of Tides.”
