Western New York Law Center
The Western New York Law Center, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation formed in 1996 after Congress restricted the types of cases that Legal Services Corporation (LSC) grantees could handle.
The Center represents low-income Western New Yorkers in civil matters, emphasizing those areas restricted by LSC. Our vision and mission with respect to our legal work is to assure that low-income people receive the full range of civil legal services including “non-traditional” legal assistance like policy advocacy and legal education.
The Center also serves as a statewide technology support center for legal services programs. Our vision and mission with respect to our technology work is to help legal services offices statewide use technology in a cost effective manner to better serve their clients in this time of diminishing resources.
Our target populations are legal services managers, attorneys, paralegals, clients and support staff.
