ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effort of Jensie Anderson, law professor at the University of Utah, of conducting a free legal advice and referrals program for homeless people in Salt Lake City in Utah. Anderson notes that the financial and social status of homeless people in Salt Lake City in Utah are their main problems and the local authority troubles them for vagrancy and loitering. Anderson's involvement with the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, a small nonprofit organization that helps people who have been fallaciously convicted of serious crimes in Utah, Nevada, and Wyoming is also mentioned.
