Oral History Interview Fragment: Future of Access to Justice

Last week, I was honored to be interviewed by Alan Houseman for the oral history project of the National Equal Justice Library.

I will be posting fragments that folks might find useful.

This first one actually comes near the end of the full interview, and is my attempt an an overview of my perspective on the future of access to justice.

I hope you find it useful, perhaps as a stimulant to discussion.  It is a little over 12 mins long.

    Richard–thanks for clearly identifying the gap in the Access to Justice community/world. You are absolutely right in that there is no one organization to organize research, respond politically to opportunities, or who makes the phone call to deal with a crisis, and how we have to build that capacity. I was alluding to this in my blog post “the elephant in the room” https://accesstojustice.net/2011/12/30/claudia-johnson-blogs-on-legal-services-policy-research-and-the-elephant-in-the-room/, however, as usual you have done it better in this video. Thank you for articulating it so clearly. I want more of your videos–inspirational and calls to action!

    Thanks for sharing this, Richard, and looking forward to future segments. Appreciated your comments about an expansive definition of access to justice that includes not only an opportunity to be heard, but also to advocate for changes to the rules under which one is heard.
