ACCESS TO JUSTICE: ONLINE RESOURCES FOR BRIDGING THE JUSTICE GAP

Bridging the Justice Gap: White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable (LAIR)

Last fall, the Obama administration established the White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable or LAIR, a federal initiative designed to close the justice gap for those in need of legal assistance. Subsequently, the Access To Justice movement has been gaining momentum and garnering the attention of both state and local governments as well as the national media. In addition to this effort, a number of other organizations have taken up the cause for those in need. Among these organizations are the following:

Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP)

The Justice Index (2016)

LegalAidResearch.org

National Center for Access to Justice

National Equal Justice Library

National Legal Aid and Defender Association

Voices for Civil Justice

White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable Toolkit
