New This Week:

A Conversation About Lawyers in the Library

We had a great conversation with Amy Petkovsek about Maryland Legal Aid's new Lawyer in the Library program and its successful approach to community lawyering. She told us about the program's origins in last year's civil unrest in Baltimore, the mechanics of how the program works, and tips for replicating the model.
