BOSTON (AP) — The Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association has received a $158,000 grant to develop new legal aid clinics and technology to help low-income clients with bankruptcy.

The project will test "pop-up" bankruptcy clinics, a customized virtual law firm platform and videoconferencing to train pro bono attorneys in parts of the state where no volunteer bankruptcy attorneys are available.

The project is one of 11 inaugural recipients of Legal Services Corp.'s $2.5 million Pro Bono Innovation Fund, a competitive grant that invests in projects to identify and promote innovations in pro bono for low-income legal aid clients.

Legal Services Corp. provides funding to independent nonprofit legal aid programs in every state.
