New This Week:

A 20-Year Collection of Welfare Reform Articles

This week marks 20 years since welfare reform became law. Our longstanding publication, Clearinghouse Review: Journal of Poverty Law and Policy, was there through the transition, as legal aid attorneys worked to make sense of the new law and its effect on their clients. We published many articles to guide attorneys through the changes and devoted the entire first issue of 1997 to welfare reform. In our new featured collection, we have compiled the welfare reform articles through the years to give a fascinating look at how this law has shaped the lives of our clients -- and our legal practice -- for the past 20 years.
