Law, Policy and Practices of Community Recovery: Legal Theory and Practice (6)

Student attorneys have significant opportunity to work with clients to engage in legal problem solving through client counseling, the preparation of advice letters and a variety of documents and contracts; as well as to assist underserved communities to navigate the numerous fields of law that make 'community development' so challenging.
