Hearing Lisa’ Foster’s Keynote at the Equal Justice Conference Should Be An Important Moment

We have just heard that Lisa Foster, the head of the DOJ Access to Justice Initiative, will be keynoting the Equal Justice Conference next month.

The chance to hear what she has to say from her perch as one of the very few people with an overview perspective of all the elements of the access to justice system should be quite something.

That this conference will be hearing for the very first time from someone in this role underlines what a very different time this is, with change happening on so many fronts — sometimes even integrated.

For so long the “Department of Justice” was really a “Department of Prosecution.”  Now, since the access position was created by President, we have had an advocate within DOJ for the critical and necessary access perspective.  That’s a different world.

I look forward to the keynote.
