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.
