Paladin is proud to announce the release of its technical integration with LegalServer, a leading case management platform for legal services organizations (LSOs) in the United States.

This integration will make it easier for legal aid administrators to recruit pro bono lawyers. They will be able to click a button in LegalServer’s Pro Bono Module and automatically send specific case data to Paladin’s system in real time. As volunteers discover and apply for pro bono matters on Paladin, their information will be available for review by the LSO, and upon case placement, will transfer back to LegalServer automatically.

For more information about how to set up an instance of LegalServer for integration with Paladin, refer to their help article.

Interoperability between systems is an important step in streamlining pro bono workflows across the ecosystem, and we are grateful to have completed this work with the help of Legal Aid Chicago, the largest legal services organization in the Chicagoland area, and several other non-profits around the country through our pilot program. LSOs work hard on behalf of the millions of low-income families and individuals who need legal assistance, and Paladin is committed to removing obstacles to meeting that need through our technology.

“This integration is essential to minimizing friction for legal services organizations and helping to place their pro bono cases more efficiently. We are thrilled to be able to offer this service as a part of our free tools for legal services organizations,” says Kristen Sonday, Paladin’s CEO.

Paladin plans to expand this integration with LegalServer by adding conflict check workflow support and more self-service API administration tools, as well as by expanding the information that can be passed between systems. We are driven to empower pro bono teams throughout the ecosystem and will be exploring other potential partnerships to maximize our reach in support of this critical work. Any organization interested in connecting with Paladin’s pro bono tools is encouraged to reach out to [email protected].
