The Civil Justice System and the Public is a collaborative research program founded on the belief that a lack of effective communication both within the system and between that system and the public, is a significant barrier interfering with access to justice. This research is designed to involve both the public and the justice community in identifying changes in communication practice that will improve the system. The goal of the project is to make specific and clear recommendations for effective change that will ultimately improve access to the civil justice system by increasing the ability of the system to hear, involve, and respond to the public.
