Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy
True compassion is more than flinging coins to a beggar...it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.
— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
April 4, 1967
The Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law and Policy is the nation's premier law journal on poverty issues. As part of its mission to bring an end to the desperate conditions afflicting so many in this wealthy nation, the Journal publishes articles from distinguished law professors and practitioners in poverty-related fields.
In addition, the Journal features student research, works from scholars in poverty-related disciplines, and the "voices" of persons living in poverty. The Journal's unique, comprehensive, and multidisciplinary approach to poverty issues and law represents a groundbreaking approach to scholarly publication.Consistent with its mission, the Journal is also actively involved in local community outreach and works with legal and social service organizations to provide assistance to those in need.
Originally published as the Georgetown Journal on Fighting Poverty in 1993, this student-edited publication is found in virtually every academic law library in America, and is accessible electronically on both Westlaw® and LEXIS®-NEXIS® (Lexis coverage beginning Winter 1998). For information on how to submit articles for publication, please contact the Journal at (202) 662-9424, or firstname.lastname@example.org .
