Abstract:

The eighth installment of the Brennan Center's Access to Justice Series, "Struggling to Meet the Need: Communities Confront Gaps in Federal Legal Aid," presents a picture of the valiant efforts of state and local governments, as well as private entities, to find ways to support civil legal representation for vulnerable individuals and families despite massive setbacks imposed by Congress in 1996. This report is a snapshot taken in the year 2000.
