This is great news. Early in January, the Senate confirmed New York Court of Appeals Judge Jonathan Lippman as a member of the State Justice Institute Board.
Readers of this blog do not need to be reminded of CJ Lippman’s visionary and forceful leadership for access to justice.
We look to the Chief for continued transformative leadership in support for funding for legal aid, for changes in court processes that make the system cheaper and more effective, as well as for a flexible and ambitious understanding of how the profession can best play its role in access.
SJI is a critical component of the national innovation infrastructure, and this is an addition to celebrate.
