In the event of a disaster, LCJC plays a key role in disaster response, coordination and the delivery of legal services. LCJC in partnership with the Louisiana State Bar Association is designed to respond quickly to justice issues in emergency situations through its legal aid hotline.

Prepared with its mobile VoIP telephone system and computers, the LCJC team is able to work remotely through its statewide toll-free disaster hotline, 1-800-310-7029. Through the hotline, callers can receive answers to legal questions, be provided with information on how to get aid and receive referrals for personal attorneys.
