The 2014 ACYL Associates’ Campaign for Legal Services will run throughout the entire month of October 2014.  The Associates Campaign is an annual grass-roots campaign comprised of associates at Atlanta-area law firms that aims to raise both awareness of the critical need for pro bono legal services in our community and much-needed funds for those organizations.

The ACYL celebrated the Campaign kick-off at a happy hour on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at Ri Ra Irish Pub.  Representatives of the Campaign’s beneficiary organizations were on hand to discuss their work and answered questions regarding how to contribute and get involved.  

The beneficiaries of the 2014 Campaign are:

  • Georgia Innocence Project;
  • Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Inc.;
  • Atlanta Legal Aid Society;
  • Georgia Legal Services Program;
  • Georgia Resource Center;
  • Georgia Appleseed;
  • Georgia Justice Project;
  • GreenLaw;
  • Truancy Intervention Project Georgia;
  • Southern Center for Human Rights;
  • Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta; and
  • Investor Advocacy Clinic.

Since its inception in 2000, the Associates’ Campaign has raised over $500,000- for Atlanta-area legal services organizations.  Last year alone, the Associates’ Campaign raised $22,788 from associates in law firms across Atlanta for sixteen legal services organizations.  The leaders from last year in terms of raising total dollars are as follows:

  1. Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore, LLP ($9,270) 
  2. Taylor English Duma, LLP ($2,501) 
  3. Alston & Bird LLP ($1,380)

The Campaign, which is organized by the ACYL Board, is carried out through campaign coordinators at each local firm who provide information and seek contributions from their fellow associates.  Last year, the Associates’ Campaign relied on the following dedicated group of associates who volunteered many hours and who served as their law firm’s firm coordinators:
