LSC Restrictions

Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) is 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization funded in part by the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). As a condition of the funding we receive from LSC, VLP is restricted from engaging in certain activities in all of its legal work, including work supported by other funding sources. VLP may not expend any funds for any activity prohibited by the Legal Services Corporation Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 2996 et seq) and its implementing regulations (45 C.F.R. § 1600 et seq). The regulation at 45 C.F.R. § 1610.7 requires us to give notice of the LSC restrictions to all non-LSC funding sources, including individual donors who contribute $250 or more to VLP. For more information about the restrictions, see LSC laws, regulations, and guidance.

Privacy and Confidentiality

VLP requires that users supply some personal information, including email address, during its registration process prior to exchanging electronic correspondences or sending out newsletters.

Except as expressly provided herein or as required by law, VLP will not knowingly disclose the contents of private electronic mail to anyone other than addressees, authorized recipients, or those to whom such disclosure is necessary to assure forwarding or delivery or the security or quality of the system.
