Access to justice is more than just a way to help the poor; it also serves the bottom line of society. In this On The Road Episode, host John Williams talks to Judge Jonathan Lippman, former Chief Judge of New York, about his work and views on equal access to justice. Judge Lippman explains the importance of making people understand that equal access to civil legal services not only changes lives, but also serves our society and economy. Meaningful legal help often drastically reduces social services costs and lowers incarceration rates. The best investment in our society is in civil legal services for those in need.
Judge Jonathan Lippman is Of Counsel at Latham & Watkins LLP, and is former chief judge of New York and chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals.
