The National Center for Access to Justice is the academically affiliated national organization exclusively dedicated to policy reform that helps people obtain justice in the courts.
Our Constitution guarantees equal justice. Yet for too many people, courts are where they will lose their children, their homes, their life savings and their freedom — outcomes many of us would consider neither just, nor justly obtained. To enable people to secure the protection of the rule of law, whether to halt domestic violence, stop unlawful foreclosures and evictions, preserve family unity, claim wages and other employment protections, challenge unfair criminal prosecutions, and more, the National Center for Access to Justice works to make our courts more accessible and fair.
