Poverty Law Primer

The Poverty Law Primer is an LSS publication for lawyers who help clients with poverty or civil law problems.

We've also made this resource available to community workers who need to understand the law so they can guide their clients to appropriate services and resources that can help to resolve their legal problems.

The legal information in the Primer is not intended to be used as legal advice for specific legal problems. Only a qualified lawyer (or in some cases a person supervised by a lawyer) can provide legal advice. Note that the information in this Primer may become outdated as laws change.
