New Databases on Poverty Law and Immigration Law

Recently the library added two new databases to our collection - the Clearinghouse Review Journal of Poverty Law and Policy and AILA (American Immigration Lawyer's Association) Link.

"Clearinghouse Review is the nation's premier journal for legal aid lawyers, equal justice advocates, and others working with low-income people to share ideas and inspire legal and policy innovation. The Review supports the legal aid and public interest law community by connecting advocates to one another through discussion, commentary, and authorship on substantive law.

Each issue of the Review offers thoughtful and reliable analysis of emerging issues and trends, as well as cross-cutting issues, relevant to poverty law practice. Review articles are both analytical and practical in scope; they are designed to provide advocates with reliable information for their daily practice while suggesting new ways of approaching client problems. Moreover, our vast archive, going back to 1967, is a valuable source of information on developments in poverty law and the history of the legal aid movement 

The Review is published six times annually. Our current issue, as well our entire archive, is available to subscribers on our website. "
