Lam Ho Beyond Legal Aid

Lam Ho

Lam is the Executive Director and Founder of Beyond Legal Aid which unites lawyers and activists through community-located, community-operated, and community-directed “activism-law programs” for over 4000 people annually, including undocumented immigrants, sex workers, laborers, and activists. Lam has been engaged in legal advocacy efforts for more than 12 years, and prior to founding Beyond was an attorney at Equip for Equality and Skadden Fellow at the Legal Advocacy Fund, where he ran 10 community-based clinics providing free legal services to youth and their families on the west side of Chicago. Lam experienced firsthand the challenges of community lawyering and civil legal services, and was inspired to innovatively change the legal aid system in the US through a “community activism lawyering” model.
