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. Lower-income people suffer more from issues like evictions, disability issues, veterans issues, healthcare, increasing debt, and domestic violence. 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.
