Access to Justice Policy Committee

Access to Justice Policy Committee


A 20 member Access to Justice Policy Committee has been created, not only to oversee the work of the ATJ Subcommittees, but to assure continuity of policy, purpose and programming in the collaboration between the private bar and the civil justice community so as to further the goal of assuring Louisianans, regardless of their economic circumstances, have access to equal justice under the law.

The ATJ Committee has been comprised primarily by those who provide the direct delivery of services; the composition of the ATJ Policy Committee will ensure diverse representation from a cross section of those involved in these issues, including the LSBA, LBF, Court, public interest firms, pro bono, LCJC, etc. The ATJ Policy Committee will meet regularly to guide the activities of the ATJ Committee, determine ATJ Committee policy and assess impact.

Access to Justice Policy Committee News and Events

2013 Year in Review
The LSBA’s Access to Justice Program could not be able to accomplish its tasks without the ongoing partnership of Justice Community Organizations and the myriad of volunteers that recognize the importance of the work of Louisiana’s non-profit legal aid providers. As one year ends, we look back at the strides we have made together and we look forward to the possibilities continued collaborations can have to benefit those seeking access to justice. 

As you browse the list of exceptional accomplishments, we ask for your continued support for the Access to Justice program through 2014.
