The conversation surrounding access to justice is often centered on what attorneys can do to close the access gap. In this report from On The Road, hosts JoAnn Hathaway and Tish Vincent talk with Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Young about innovations happening in the state and supreme courts, imposed performance standards for trial judges, and how tech and process design are helping to streamline the judiciary.

A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, Justice Young joined Dickinson, Wright, Moon, Van Dusen & Freeman in 1978, becoming partner in 1982. He became vice president, corporate secretary, and general counsel of AAA Michigan in 1992, prior to joining the Court of Appeals in 1995. After joining the court in 1999, Justice Young was elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2010 to a term ending on January 1, 2019.
