    Product Description

    MCLE is pleased to present its 10th Annual Legal Services Conference, which brings together members of the Massachusetts legal services community for a half-day of learning. This year’s Conference focuses on movement lawyering. We are discussing community-driven advocacy to advance systemic change and racial justice.

    Legal services advocates provide high-quality legal services for people with low incomes and populations that have been systemically marginalized. They also work to achieve equity for people living in poverty. Effective advocacy attacks the root causes of poverty, which includes the racialized history of institutions and structures. Movement lawyering empowers legal services advocates to take direction from the communities and people most affected by unjust structures and support them as they build power in their communities.

    At this Conference you learn about the history and concepts behind movement lawyering; hear from different types of community organizations; learn about some of the challenges and rewards of movement lawyering; and get practical, actionable tools to begin applying these tactics in your work.

    You don’t want to miss this opportunity to hear from your colleagues, learn from existing challenges, and gain practical knowledge to effectively work with your community.

    Stay tuned for updates to the list of participating faculty as the Conference date gets closer!
