Poverty & Access to Justice Symposium
Supra and the Mississippi Law Journal cordially invite you to attend our Poverty & Access to Justice Symposium, sponsored by the Pro Bono Initiative. The Symposium will take place on Friday, February 8, 2013 at the University of Mississippi School of Law’s Robert C. Khayat Law Center.
Across the nation, states are grappling with ways to remove barriers to the justice system. This challenge is particularly daunting in Mississippi, a state burdened with the highest poverty rates in the country. At the Symposium, state supreme court justices, appellate and trial judges, scholars, and practitioners will examine barriers to the justice system, creative legal service delivery methods, and specific programs that are proving effective. Please join Supra and the Mississippi Law Journal for the Poverty & Access to Justice Symposium as national leaders in the legal community explore innovative solutions.
