    Recognizing that many in the legal profession have the desire and ability to help the most impoverished members of our society, the ABA Commission on Homelessness and Poverty has invited outstanding individuals to relate their personal experiences of using the law to combat poverty and homelessness. The resulting book reflects the diversity of experience and talent of the legal profession, as well as the ingenuity and creativity of those that have sought alternate methods of helping others. With contributions from a broad range of lawyers, judges, law students, and service providers, the book speaks to all readers who are interested in using their skills to help those who are often overlooked or ignored. This comprehensive book contains 29 articles, including the following:

    ·         An introduction by 2005-2006 ABA President Michael Greco

    ·         Maria Foscarinis details how her love of pro bono work led her to devote her career to national policy advocacy and the establishment of the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty

    ·         Casey Trupin highlights an innovative program whereby law students conduct outreach and provide supervised legal representation to homeless and runaway youth

    ·         John Ammann describes a major litigation, aided in large part by law students, that protected homeless people against mistreatment from their own city

    ·         Jeffrey Simes documents his law firm's journey as it worked on securing the rights of homeless children to attend public schools

    ·         Emiko Ryan established a program in Hawaii to provide holistic services to the homeless

    ·         Steve Binder describes the establishment, growth, and success of the innovative Homeless Court Program that removes barriers to housing, treatment, and employment.
