Abstract

By promoting a simple but significant innovation in practice, legal advocates can strengthen the ability of legal services clients to advocate for themselves, navigate systems, and take action on their own behalf, not only in the legal system but also in all places where decisions are being made that affect them. Based on three decades of work in low-income communities across many fields, the Right Question Institute has identified three principles that can help guide efforts to support innovation in service delivery and achieve this "shift in practice."
