Justice for All

Gillis Long Poverty Law Center

For more than 30 years, the College of Law has facilitated representation of low-income people through the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center. Access to civil legal services is transformative for low-income and vulnerable people. This Center was founded to give students and graduates the opportunity to engage in lawyering for those who would not otherwise have access to legal services.
