Legal Services Journal

The Legal Services Journal was published four times a year for legal service advocates and each issue highlighted a specific area of law.  Due to funding cuts, the Empire Justice Center will no longer be publishing the Legal Services Journal but we will keep the archives of the LSJ available.
