Online Intake Best Practices
Online intake is the process of taking applications for legal aid services via the web, and it is one of the fastest growing uses of technology in our community. An informal survey by LAWNY earlier this year found 26 programs experimenting with this service via the web. This LSNTAP/PBN Community Training Series webinar will review different online intake implementations as well as their policy and compliance implications.
