RFP: Consulting Services for LTF AI Initiative

The Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois (LTF) AI Initiative will be led by a consultant who will provide technical assistance to help legal aid leaders answer these and other critical AI-related questions. The goal of the AI Initiative is to enable legal aid programs to take full advantage of AI tools to make advocates more effective and to ensure that as many individuals as possible get the legal help they need.

Key tasks include:
• Engage in exploratory research/conversations with LTF grantees to establish a baseline
understanding of current AI use and level of interest in adopting AI tools;
• Track, synthesize, and share legal-aid relevant information regarding the rapid evolution of
generative AI technologies and products;
• Offer general AI education programs and targeted training opportunities to the Illinois legal
aid community;
• Organize AI-focused peer learning and mutual support groups based on characteristics such
as types of work, areas of practice, levels of expertise, etc.;
• Share examples of best-practice use cases;
• Help organizations develop AI adoption strategies and governance policies;
• Serve as an expert and advisor on ethical and privacy issues related to AI;
• Provide coaching for effective AI use at the team, project, and organizational levels;
• Advise LTF on cost-effective funding strategies to maximize the adoption and impact of AI
among its grantees, including targeted grants to subsidize subscription fees and/or to build
custom tools;
• Produce semi-annual reports (February 2025, September 2025, February 2026) that
document the level of adoption of AI tools by LTF grantees and assess the impact of AI on
legal aid practices and productivity.

Proposals should be addressed to LTF Executive Director Mark Marquardt via email to mark@ltf.org by no later than July 25, 2024.
