Thanks to a grant from Longwood Foundation, Law @ DCRAC joins a growing field of innovators! Before they were buzzwords, Luz Herrera was a pioneer in the world of "low bono" practice, nonprofit law firms and legal incubators. All three innovations have blossomed and spread across the country since then. For instance, the ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services reports there are over 60 established or planned legal incubators across 33 states and four countries. Meanwhile, according to Open Legal Services, 29 nonprofit law firms have been created in the last five years—compared with eight firms before 2014. And of those eight firms, only three predate 2004.
