The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) provides civil legal services to the economically disadvantaged. In order to do this, it finances over 300 legal service projects across the nation staffed by over 3,700 attorneys who handle an estimated 1.2 million legal problems annually. LSC budget has more than doubled since 1976 in an effort to expand service to cover previously unmet needs of the poor. LSC is also required to study the economy and effectiveness of alternative systems for delivering legal services to the poor.
