As part of pro bono month, this free webinar on Oct. 27 will focus on structural poverty and its impacts on low-income family law clients.
Gonzaga University School of Law professor Kim Hai Pearson will define and contextualize structural poverty, and explain why the competent attorney must understand the broader structural and societal forces at work. Next, private family law attorney Laura Groves will provide the practitioner’s perspective on how to work more sensitively and effectively with family law clients within the structural poverty context.
