Episode Notes

The Oklahoma Summit on Access to Justice seeks to develop and implement policy initiatives designed to expand access to and enhance the quality of justice in civil legal matters for low-income Oklahoma residents. In this On The Road Report, host John Williams talks to Chief Justice Douglas Combs and Judge Rick Bozarth about their plans to revitalize Oklahoma’s Access to Justice Commission. They discuss the commission’s desire to educate Oklahomans on the importance of access to civil justice and how it affects all residents. They also talk about the ways the commission works to improve access: offering certified interpretation services, coordinating niche services under one umbrella for easier access, and possibly developing programs for educating pro se litigants.

Douglas Combs is currently serving as Chief Justice of the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Rick Bozarth is the Associate District Judge of Dewey County, Oklahoma.
