West Hawaii Today - The report, by the National Center for Access to Justice, measured how accessible the justice system is in four categories: attorney access for low-income litigants; support for self-represented litigants; support for litigants with limited language proficiency and support for people with disabilities.
Journal Courier - The National Center for Access to Justice oversees The Justice Index, which uses data from four categories to compare states’ access to the justice system — especially for the poor and those with disabilities.
The Ledger Independent - "Across the country, there are millions of people who don't have legal representation and face other barriers in their abilities to protect their interests and enforce their rights," said David Udell, the center's executive director. "Our Justice Index is our online resource in identifying best practices ... ensuring that people do have access to the justice system."
