MassBarBeatA new episode of the Massachusetts Bar Association's MassBar Beat podcast is now available!

Each day people facing life-changing legal issues are going to court alone because they don't qualify for legal aid or cannot afford a lawyer. It's created a justice gap. But there are efforts under way to address these unmet legal needs.

In the episode, “Closing the Justice Gap,” MassBar Beat host Jordan Rich talks with attorneys Len Zandrow of UMass School of Law's Justice Bridge Legal Center and Damian Turco of Lawyers for Affordable Justice about how legal incubators like theirs are working to close the justice gap by pairing newer attorneys, or lawyers committed to representing clients at discount, with modest-means clients.
