Conventional legal services can be likened to acute care or emergency room services aimed at crisis management and stabilization, rather than preventive care services. This presentation will highlight the innovative approach medical-legal partnerships (MLP) use to provide legal services in a setting where legal issues affecting health and well-being can be addressed before they become legal and potentially medical emergencies.
