An April, 17, 2012 White House forum , co-hosted by LSC, looked at the critical role of civil legal assistance for the poor in fulfilling the promise of “justice for all,”’ and in maintaining America’s commitment to the rule of law, two nonpartisan issues that are fundamental to our way of life.

Sandman.
