A complete hosted web publishing solution for building effective  public information websites.

BACKGROUND

The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) needed an open source template for running statewide websites for legal aid nonprofits in each state.  These websites would provide legal information for those who cannot afford a lawyer.
 

THE
CHALLENGE

The template had to be open source so that it could be easily adopted and customized throughout the legal services community. The template had to incorporate latest web practices while being easy-to-use. The solution would have to be affordable for non-profits and provide technical support.

THE
SOLUTION

Working with legal aid programs across the United States, Urban Insight built Drupal for Legal Aid Websites (DLAW) using the popular Drupal web content management system and released DLAW under an open source license. We also offered hosted DLAW as a subscription-based service via OpenAdvocate to provide stable long-term technical support and maintenance. DLAW includes many features designed specifically for legal services community including a dashboard, reports and SEO tools.
