Episode Notes

Millions of Americans try to navigate the civil justice system without representation because they cannot afford legal services. At the Oklahoma Summit on Access to Justice, host John Williams talks to Jim Sandman, president of Legal Services Corporation, about the justice gap: the difference between the civil legal needs of low-income Americans and the resources available to meet those needs. They discuss raising awareness of the issue and highlight that studies on legal aid funding show a huge return on the investment. It makes good financial sense for our society to provide equal access to justice for all Americans, regardless of economic status.

Jim Sandman is president of Legal Services Corporation, the country’s largest funder of civil legal aid programs.
