Court Square Law Project Receives ABA Award for Legal Access

The New York City Bar Association and CUNY Law announced that the Court Square Law Project, a pilot program founded by the City Bar and CUNY in 2016 with support from Paul, Weiss and 18 other leading New York law firms, has been named the 2019 recipient of the American Bar Association Louis M. Brown Award for Legal Access. Developed in response to the City Bar’s Task Force on New Lawyers in a Changing Profession, the Project’s mission is to create a self-sustaining law firm providing client-centered, affordable, sliding-scale legal services, thereby closing the justice gap for moderate-income clients. The Brown Award recognizes programs and projects that enable affordable access to legal services in ways that are exemplary and replicable for those of moderate incomes. Firm chairman Brad Karp, alongside the chairs of O’Melveny & Myers and Skadden Arps, led the effort among law firms to serve as founding sponsors of the program. Mary Lu Bilek, dean of CUNY Law, is a Paul, Weiss alum.
