An Overview of Access to Justice
Numerous international standards recognize access to justice as a basic human right. The phrase “access to justice” can have many meanings. Generally, the phrase refers to attempts to improve the justice system’s ability to deliver outcomes that are fair and accessible to all, regardless of wealth or social status. Improving access to justice can involve the advocacy of legislative and policy changes, educating the public on legal options, promoting solutions outside the formal legal system, creating a more user-friendly court system, and offering pro bono legal aid services.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice established the Office for Access to Justice (ATJ) in an effort to formalize the federal government’s work to improve access to justice domestically. Internationally, the United Nations works with governments around the world to develop and reform national policies on legal aid, as well as building non-state legal-aid services.

Any lawyer offering pro bono services can also benefit from better understanding of the current problems and trends related to access to justice.
