I am pleased and proud to announce that fifteen thoughtful and distinguished friends of access to justice have agreed to become members of this blog’s Board of Commentators. I am particularly pleased that not all are lawyers, since we have so much to learn from other professions and areas of knowledge and experience.
I hope that the members of this Board will help make this a much more interactive site, with a range of ideas, reactions and conversations, all ultimately advancing our understanding and energy. The aim is to encourage, not discourage, additional comments by everyone.

Katherine Alteneder, Coordinator, Self-Represented Litigation Network.
Martha Bergmark, Executive Director, Voices for Civil Justice.
James Burdick, MD, retired Professor John Hopkins Medical School and retired Director Health Resources and Services, Division of Transplantation, HHS.
