Executive Director Matt Selig talks about "The Value of Legal Services for Low-Income People"

 

The equal justice community nationally is engaged in an important dialogue on a critical subject: how can we communicate the positive impacts of legal services delivery to low-income people to a range of stakeholders, many of whom historically have not been viewed as access to justice allies? Matt Selig joined a panel of other legal advocacy experts for a thoughtful and wide-ranging discussion on this subject from a local perspective. Panel members shared insights from their efforts to frame legal services effectively for new and different audiences, with particular attention to the philosophical, ethical, and practical tensions these strategies raise.

Other members of the panel included

  • Samantha Morton (Moderator), Medical Legal Partnership - Boston
  • Jerry Mogul, Massachusetts Advocates for Children
  • Georgia D. Katsoulomitis, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
  • David W. Rosenberg, Englander, Leggett & Chicoine, P.C.
