Description

New York Lawyers for the Public Interest is a nonprofit, civil rights law firm that strives for social justice. In partnership with member law firms, corporate law departments, and other organizations, NYLPI helps underrepresented people develop legal strategies to serve their vision for themselves and their communities.

Created in 1976 to address unmet legal needs, NYLPI combines a pro bono clearinghouse with an in-house practice that blends innovative lawyering, community organizing, and advocacy. The Pro Bono Clearinghouse provides community groups and nonprofit organizations with free legal assistance by drawing on hundreds of volunteer lawyers from New York's most prestigious law firms and corporate law departments. The Disability Law Center protects and promotes the civil rights of people with disabilities. The Access to Health Care Program works to ensure access to quality health care for people in medically underserved communities or facing barriers due to limited English proficiency, racial and ethnic discrimination, or disability. The Environmental Justice and Community Development Project provides organizing and legal assistance to low-income neighborhoods and communities of color that bear an unfair burden of environmental threats.
