The Access to Justice Initiative was launched by the U.S. Department of Justice in March 2010 to improve access to justice for all Americans, regardless of status, income, or wealth. This includes: improving the availability and quality of indigent defense; enhancing civil legal representation for those without great wealth, including the middle class as well as the poor; focusing with special care upon the legal needs of the most vulnerable among us, including immigrants, juveniles, the homeless, disabled veterans, and victims of domestic and sexual violence; working with Federal, state, and tribal judiciaries to strengthen fair, impartial, and independent adjudication; promoting less lawyer-intensive and court-intensive solutions to legal problems; exchanging information with foreign ministries of justice and judicial systems on our respective efforts to improve access; and encouraging the development of more thoroughly evidence-based solutions to problems in the delivery of legal services.
