Resources for practicing medical-legal partnership during the COVID-19 pandemic

Thursday, April 2, 2020

*Last updated June 15, 2020.* The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating health and economic disparities. As urgent health and legal needs intersect during this crisis, medical-legal partnerships (MLPs) are uniquely positioned to respond. While communities’ needs change and grow every day, The National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership (NCMLP) has created resources to help MLPs guide their efforts, including a COVID-19 tip sheet with eight things every MLP can do right now to respond to operational challenges and help meet communities’ needs during the pandemic. NCMLP is curating a digital digest of resources around a series of specific legal topics, such as eviction protection, personal safety planning, and employment and income issues. This list of resources will be updated continually. NCMLP also hosted a series of MLP town halls that explored issues like advance care planning and remote legal services. The recordings are available in our resource library.
