Partnerships Across the U.S.

Hundreds of the nation’s leading health organizations now recognize the importance of leveraging legal expertise and services to address their communities’ health-related social needs. Some of these hospitals, health systems, and health centers directly employ attorneys to work for their patients, while the vast majority partner with a local civil legal aid agency or law school in their area to provide these services. These medical-legal partnerships work to meet the health needs of children, elderly individuals, Native Americans, veterans, and people with chronic illnesses. See below for organizations currently engaged in medical-legal partnership activities.
