Message from the Chair

Thanks for your interest in the recent edition of the “Poverty Law Reporter.” Our newsletter focuses on the good work being done by our members on behalf of those who have limited means, but who need legal services by lawyers willing to work hard to help ensure access to justice. It also recognizes those who go above and beyond, whose commitment and passion exemplify the practice of poverty law. It is these individuals who, during PLS’ annual meeting, are recognized by the membership to receive Impact Awards and the Noble Award, which is the highest honor given by PLS to one of its own. The Noble Award is presented in recognition of an attorney’s achievements and his or her influence on both the practice of poverty law and to those who otherwise might not obtain legal relief.
