Annual National Public Interest Law
College of Advocacy
At the heart of public interest work is knowledge of the law as it affects
low-income people. Case handlers must be able to identify the possible
issues in a case even if they’re unarticulated by clients or outside your
area of emphasis. Support staff must understand the legal issues so you
can be productive team members and the all-important bridges between the
office and the client community. And everyone must know where to refer
clients for help. These sessions introduce you to the key legal issues
and the people and institutions that you can use for support.
