The paper Improving access to justice: community-based solutions addresses a major issue – inaccessibility to justice – prevalent in countries with advanced legal systems such as the UK and the US. The paper discusses reasons for this inaccessibility, and proposes solutions which do not require government intervention.
The paper explain how, the current grave economic inequality, and a legal profession which is not representative of the society it represent – corrode access to justice. As economic equality is unlikely to improve in the near future, the paper proposes alternative immediate solutions.
The paper calls for urgent action by individuals and communities, and suggests that such actions would also encourage governments to increase efforts to improve equality in access to justice.
