Year in Review

The annual Year in Review report is designed to help stakeholders broaden their understandings of the issues, identify others who are working in parallel paths and facilitate conversations about increased avenues of access to legal services for those of moderate income.

The Report annotates articles from the legal press, bar publications and reports. It provides information about court rules, orders, guidelines and ethics opinions that were adopted in each year. The Report also details information about initiatives supported by the Standing Committee and models promoted through the ABA Louis M. Brown Award for Legal Access. While the work of the Committee is presented, the Report highlights the work of many entities at all levels that share a dedication to improving access to justice through a wider conversation, policy decisions and programmatic advances.
