The North Carolina Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division coordinates the North Carolina Disaster Legal Services (DLS) effort in partnership with the Young Lawyers Division of the American Bar Association, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC). The DLS pro bono program provides disaster-related resources and services to the public and attorneys with the support of the North Carolina Bar Foundation. These organizations partnered to provide pro bono legal services to victims in the wake of Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Greensboro-area tornadoes in 2017, Hurricanes Florence and Michael in 2018, and Tropical Storm Fred in 2021.
