Legal Aid Service (LAS) - Ensure Safe and Secure Access to Case Bank for the State-Funded Legal Aid Service (LAS) Lawyer while Working Remotely

Period/Duration: 04.20.2020-06.20.2020

Amount: $4,999

Project description: The project addresses challenges associated with the use of the case management system in a state of emergency declared to fight the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which requires LAS lawyers and staff to work remotely. Through this grant, LAS Georgia will purchase and install a Next Generation Firewall, which will allow LAS employees to work remotely and connect to the network through an encrypted VPN connection. The Grant will facilitate secure access to the case bank for LAS lawyers working remotely. The electronic case management system is the most important tool for the LAS, and the ability to access and enter data will ensure proper case assignment, maintain data about the cases handled by LAS lawyers, and produce statistics. This system will also support better enforcement of the lawyer appraisal system.

The project is financed through the COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants Program.
