ATJ Commission Movement

The first ATJ Commission launched in 1994 (Washington State).  In year 2000, there were three Commissions.  But now, in year 2014, that number has grown more than ten-fold, to 38 Commissions.

The ABA has fostered the launching and development of ATJ Commissions via the Access to Justice Expansion Project, an initiative funded with generous support from the Public Welfare Foundation and Kresge Foundation.
