Significant Return on Investment through Civil Legal Aid
The necessity and importance of providing civil legal aid are clear from two studies released by Indiana's Coalition for Court Access. The Indiana Civil Legal Needs Study and the Economic Impact and Social Value Return on Investment Analysis provide insight for allocating civil legal aid resources and the return on investment for the State of Indiana when civil legal needs are met for low-income Hoosiers. For every $1 invested in Indiana's civil legal aid services, there is $6.70 in immediate and long-term consequential financial benefits.
