Valegalaid.org

VaLegalAid.org is a Virginia Partnership for Equal Justice Website Project. It is an ambitious attempt by Virginia legal aid offices and their partners to provide complete, accurate, up-to-date information on poverty law issues in an interactive and easily accessible format. The intent is to allow access to this information by legal aid attorneys, pro bono attorneys, clients, advocates and providers of services to legal aid’s traditional client base.

Probono.net/va

A resource for advocates and others who do pro bono work in the community. The www.probono.net/va site includes brief banks for legal aid and pro bono attorneys handling poverty law cases, a library of training and CLE materials, a calendar of monthly training and other opportunities, relevant news stories, volunteer opportunities, as well as listservs for those listserv members who want to post relevant discussion topics so that other attorneys, staff, and advocates can respond and provide feedback.
