Access to Justice: Home

Guide to print and online sources, both legal and interdisciplinary for access to justice research. Prepared for the Access to Justice Seminar

Access to Justice is a wide ranging topic. However, at its core, it is about ensuring that everyone, regardless of race, sex, gender identity, nationality, wealth, or disability, has equal access to the system of justice and legal information. The UN recognizes access to justice as a basic principle of law necessary to ensure that people can have their voice heard, exercise their rights, and hold decision-makers accountable for failures and discrimination. Access to Justice encompasses more than being able to access courts; it also includes the ability to communicate with people in the justice system and understand their rights.
