Indiana Civil Legal Aid Economic Impact Study Results

The findings show that for every $1 invested in Indiana legal aid, the citizens of Indiana receive nearly $7 in immediate and long-term financial benefits.

Volunteers do not need previous experience or to be an attorney to participate. Find all competition dates and register to volunteer, or contact Collin Gruver, 317-608-6503, for more information.

In the last quarter of 2018, over 54,000 visitors accessed the site, which links to legal services agencies and court forms for unrepresented litigants. An article by The Indiana Lawyer highlights additional benefits and plans for further improving the site.

"If you would have told me three years ago when I joined Mock Trial that I would win a best attorney award at state, I probably would have laughed. This program has provided me with so much confidence and so many amazing memories."
-- Caitlyn, Valparaiso High School
