Progress in 2018

Understanding the access to justice challenges people face is critical to making meaningful system changes. Viewing the problem from within the system provides only one perspective. Efforts to make user-centered and evidence-based decisions rely on learning from many perspectives and collecting robust data.

Justice sector organizations have long collected statistics about their own operations. PLE organizations know how many people use or download their resources. Courts know how many cases are heard. Legal Aid tracks its clients’ and lawyers’ time and casework. Law Societies and Pro Bono organizations know about the activities of their members and volunteers. These data collection efforts continued as new 2018 projects aimed to standardize and share this data. Researchers across disciplines are using this data to ask new questions and test new approaches.
