Company Profile

The Legal Aid Society of Rochester, N.Y. (LASROC) is one of the oldest Legal Aid Societies in the country. LASROC traces its origins to the formation of the Rochester's Women's Educational and Industrial Union (W.E.I.U.) in 1893. The W.E.I.U., founded in part by Susan B. Anthony, was established to bring together diverse women's groups in Rochester and provide a strong unified force, working to eradicate the many problems facing women of the era. Throughout its history, The Legal Aid Society of Rochester has provided direct legal services to low and moderate income residents in Greater Rochester & Monroe County. To this day, we continue to advocate for change and increase access to justice for all.
