This program highlights the dramatic transformation of the American legal system from one that focuses on formal decision-making to one that is committed to equal access. The new vision contemplates that all – rich and poor, well-connected and less-connected, with lawyers and without – can have their cases heard and their grievances resolved.

The changes go well beyond traditional efforts to increase funding for lawyers to assist the poor, and include expanded pro bono roles for private attorneys, new services for self-represented litigants, and new structures for self-assessment by courts.  The changes are creating many new and interesting opportunities for lawyers to make a difference.

Our learning objectives are to update participants on:

• New Opportunities in Pro Bono (including in Discrete Task Representation),
• Innovations for the Self-Represented (including latest court practices),
• Progress Toward Civil Gideon (including new pilot programs),
• Changes in the Legal Services Corporation and IOLTA (including responses to the financial crisis), and
• The Justice Index Project (the initiative to establish benchmarks that illuminate how the justice system is doing).
