Adopt-A-Region

Alaska Legal Services Corporation
Thursday, February 9, 2012

Alaska Legal Services Corporation's (ALSC) developed “Adopt a Region” of Alaska in an effort to increase private attorney involvement in the remote areas.

The project encourages large firms to focus their pro bono efforts on helping clients from a single community. Firms may also develop and could develop expertise in specific areas.

An early partner in the project is the law firm Patton Boggs, which “adopted” North Slope Borough and Nome. Alaska Legal Services Corporation screens for applicants from the applicable areas, and refers eligible clients to Patton Boggs.

Alaska Legal Services Corporation is in conversations with three additional law firms in Alaska to expand the “Adopt a Region” project into other rural areas.
