Poverty Law Center Offers Resources to Law Clinics
The Sargent Shriver National Poverty Law Center wants to be sure that all law clinics have full access to the valuable resources available through the Center. The Shriver Center is a national resource that champions law and policy promoting equal opportunity and support for low-income individuals, families, and communities so that they can escape poverty permanently. Its tools include advocacy, policy development, and communications.
The Center's recent report on barriers to public benefits, Accessing the Safety Net: Administrative Barriers to Public Benefits in Metropolitan Chicago exemplifies its collaborative approach to research and action, that seeks to create an information channel among advocates, grass-roots groups, researchers, policymakers and lawmakers.
Want to know more? The Shriver Center publishes the Clearinghouse Review: Journal of Poverty Law & Policy, manages an extensive poverty law library of case documents and includes a national technology project.
To guarantee easy access to the Shriver Center's resources, the Clinical Law Blog will include the Shriver Center website on our list of Public Interest links.
Thanks to the Shriver Center for reaching out to Clinical Law Blog.
