Cleveland, Ohio (2010)

In 2010, HALO partnered with the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland to send twenty-five law students to Cleveland, Ohio. For the last 20 years, Cleveland has been ranked one of the poorest large cities in the country, with a declining population and a poverty rate of 31.3% in 2003. It has also struggled to deliver quality education to its residents. HALO members staffed legal clinics on-site in community centers throughout Cleveland to help clients represent themselves.
