Missouri Pro Bono Legal Information, Resources and Assistance

Like other legal services programs across the country, Missouri's have been dependent on federal funds from the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The LSC provides funds to four Missouri Legal Services programs. Each program has its own board, consisting of lawyers, judges and clients. The boards determine local priorities, deciding which civil legal needs are most compelling and critical in their communities. The boards also determine the services they can provide.
