conference paper description
Presentation will discuss effective strategies for teaching poverty law, either as a stand-alone course, or as part of a clinical course. The presentation will proceed in two parts, one focused on creating and teaching a doctrinal course and one focused on imparting poverty law lessons within existing clinical courses. The presenters include a range of seven professors who teach poverty in various contexts throughout the law school curriculum. In each part, presenters will provide the audience with concrete takeaways, including sample syllabi, readings, exercises, and the like.
