Help make it easier for lawyers who want to make a difference. Support NC LEAF.

Every year, many law school graduates enter public interest careers as legal aid lawyers, public defenders, lawyers working for nonprofit organizations, and similar jobs. Many graduate law school with debt that is challenging to service on public interest salaries. Without NC LEAF assistance, many lawyers will eventually be forced to take work outside of the public interest sector. This in turn has an impact on public interest employers, making it harder to recruit lawyers to work on behalf of North Carolina’s most vulnerable populations.

NC LEAF assistance makes it possible for attorneys to remain in public interest work in turn strengthening our state and its people. Supporting NC LEAF is supporting the important work that public interest attorneys do every single day and allows them to stay in these vital positions.
