TOPIC: Evictions are a primary cause, and not just a symptom, of poverty. Lawrence Wood of LAF will discuss a current initiative to install electronic recording devices, and thereby improve the administration of justice, in the eviction courts, where every year thousands of low-income families (many with young children and/or household members with disabilities) appear without benefit of counsel. Mr. Wood is the Director of the Housing Practice Group at LAF, the Midwest’s largest provider of free civil legal services to the poor.

SPEAKER(S): Lawrence Wood of LAF
