This article is a review of observational studies, published from January 1993-January 2016, to investigate the capacity of medical-legal partnerships to address legal and health disparities. The authors identified 13 articles for qualitative analysis from an initial pool of 355 records, four of which directly addressed the impact of MLP intervention on patient wellbeing and/or patient utilization of health care services.
