Legal Aid: Presenation and Discussion

By Bernard Greensfelder, Max B. May, Minnie F. Low, Max Herzberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), May 1910

The author outlines the injustices that the legal system holds for the vulnerable and describes the steps taken by the Chicago Jewish community to provide a systematic legal aid network. Social workers work with the police and the courts to advocate for those in need, and the Bureau provides legal information, assists clients in enforcing their rights especially with regards to unpaid wages, and offers alternatives to the lengthy, expensive, and often ineffective litigation. In the discussion that follows, Conference delegates consider the appropriate scope of legal aid and share knowledge and experience from other cities.
