LSCA Newsletters and Trainings – Nassau Suffolk Law Services

LSCA Newsletters and Trainings

The Legal Support Center for Advocates (LSCA) has a unique role at Law Services as a legal back-up center for advocates from social service agencies, religious organizations, health care facilities and other community-based agencies.

The Center’s Helpline provides phone support to community advocates so they may effectively assist their clients in welfare, housing, access to health care, disability issues, and other legal matters. This partnership with the community is especially valuable as it enables us to exponentially serve more clients than would be possible with our limited resources for direct legal services. When appropriate, the Center facilitates referrals to one of Law Services many programs.

Law Services’ LSCA also publishes an educational newsletter and an e-news service, Legal Lessons. Interested? Click here to sign up and stay up to date on the most recent changes in law affecting our Long Island community.

LSCA hosts many successful seminars, meetings, and training events each year. Our legal courses help your team become better advocates while navigating various legal issues with clients.

LSCA is a proud partner of United Way of Long Island United Way of Long Island.
