The Poverty Simulation CLE is designed to offer pro bono attorneys a glimpse of the daily struggles of low income clients. Participants will be assigned roles as members of a low income family and, over the course of two hours, will navigate four virtual weeks as they contend with transportation, housing, food stamps, child care, employment, and more. After the simulation, Judge Scott Vowell will speak on the ethics of pro bono.
