In the style of philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, who has written about the ethics of the Face, this essay challenges the complacency of most American law schools in response to the plight of the poor and proposes ways in which the law school curriculum, space and programs can be re-configured to bring the poor into community with legal educators and students.
