In these volatile times, legal aid nonprofits can increase and sustain impact by investing in organizational development. Certain features of organization behavior -- e.g. data-driven decision making, continuous improvement, collaboration across sectors -- can lead to work that is more nimble, client-centered, and strategic. Unfortunately, organizational development is a discipline that is neither taught in law schools, nor part of minimum continuing legal education. Seeing this gap, OneJustice seeks to strengthen the legal aid sector by offering topical resources.
