About Legal Services of North Dakota - Bismarck
Legal Services of North Dakota (LSND) was formed in 2004 following the consolidation of two long time North Dakota legal aid programs; Legal Assistance of North Dakota, Inc., better known as LAND, and North Dakota Legal Services based out of New Town, North Dakota.
Legal Services of North Dakota (LSND) provides free legal assistance in civil cases to low-income or elderly people. It is the mission of LSND to protect and enhance the civil legal rights of, and promote systemic change, for North Dakotans living in poverty.
At LSND, we seek to increase the education and participation of the pro bono bar and community members in serving low-income clients.
LSND’s mission is to provide high quality legal advice, education and representation to low-income North Dakotans as well as disadvantaged elderly in areas of civil law.
Legal Services of North Dakota receives roughly 8000 applications for assistance each year and is able to provide at least some assistance in about two-thirds of the requests. LSND accepts applications through toll-free telephone lines, on-line over the web and at various outreach sites throughout North Dakota.
