The Atlanta Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) has been bestowed the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Lawyer Referral Service Cindy A Kaisch Award for an outstanding LRIS program worthy of emulation.

 

The award recognizes the unprecedented giving amount of $200,000 by the LRIS grant program last year, distributed in partnership with the Atlanta Bar Foundation, which supported ten worthy programs and organizations.  Recipients included youth programs of the Atlanta Bar Association, such as the Summer Law Internship Program and Minority and Diversity Clerkship Program, and various pro bono service providers in the community.  Many of those organizations, like Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Association, Atlanta Legal Aid Society and Truancy Intervention Project, were founded or were established through collaborative support given by the Atlanta Bar Association.
