law school, poverty law


This essay argues that poverty law can and should be a part of the law school curriculum. If the law school believes it mission to be creating "1) lawyers as public citizens and leaders; 2) lawyers as skilled technicians of the law; 3) lawyers as skilled counselors; 4) lawyers as advocates on behalf of a cause in legal institutions; and 5) lawyers as transformational partners with the poor" then poverty law instruction is vital.
