The paper discusses the significant developments in the prov1s1on of legal services to low-income persons that have taken place during the last four decades. Since the second world war, there have been numerous developments in various parts of the world with respect to legal services, as the legal profession, the judiciary, and governments have grappled with civil and criminal procedures in their attempt to make them more accessible to the poor, the unemployed and the victims who have traditionally been excluded from the legal system.
