Access to Justice

According to the Legal Services Corporation, 86% of lower-income Americans received little or no legal help on their civil legal problem.

This is the segment of our population that most needs legal assistance. Instead, they are struggling with a complicated legal system and unmanageable lawyer fees.

The following are podcasts with professionals discussing different aspects of access to justice and what we can all do together.
