Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation Launches New Website
The Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation invites visitors to connect with resources, program information, and news about civil legal aid
BOSTON, December 17, 2015 – The Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation, the largest funding source for civil legal aid in the Commonwealth, announced today the launch of its newly redesigned website. The revamped site is easy to navigate, provides a simple web-based referral service, and highlights the work of the legal services programs MLAC supports.
The website boasts a modern design, with a clean layout and visuals that capture the heart of what civil legal aid is about: helping clients. The home page quickly links those looking for legal services for low-income people with local legal aid programs, as well as online resources like the Legal Resource Finder, and MassLegalHelp.org. By providing clear direction on where to find legal services and information, potential clients can more easily find answers to questions about their issue.
While the 14 programs supported by MLAC focus on different regions and issue areas, the programs are tied together by their commitment to an equitable and accessible justice system. The website serves as a space to explore the common threads that connect the programs, and contains a blog and program news section to share updates, success stories, and new ideas about civil legal aid. The site also functions smoothly with social media platforms, allowing ideas to be shared within and beyond the legal services community.
“We are excited about the launch of our new website and the easy access to information about our programs that it provides,” said Lonnie A. Powers, Executive Director of MLAC. “By connecting clients, legal services organizations, and the public with resources on civil legal aid, our new website is just one of the many steps we are taking to move closer to equal justice for all.”
The Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation was established by the state legislature in 1983 to ensure that low-income people with critical, non-criminal legal problems would have access to legal information, advice and representation. For more information, visit http://www.mlac.org.
