LTP students will spend an average of 10 hours a week engaging in individual and/or systemic advocacy work on behalf of women and families who are receiving or seeking public benefits in Maryland. During the spring of 2003, students worked on 3 projects. The first concerned the barriers faced by people with disabilities seeking to access welfare benefits and programs. The second involved removing a requirement that parents seek child support before qualifying for child care vouchers. The third addressed a restriction in the unemployment insurance program that makes part-time workers ineligible. Projects for 2004 will be selected based on current advocacy needs. LTP students work in teams under the supervision of a faculty member and in collaboration with other attorneys in Maryland.
