The ABA has produced a number of works assessing the ability of poor or moderate income people to use the justice system to obtain assistance with problems. Since then, a number of states have produced their own needs assessments and impact studies. The state reports are collected below on this page. Also, here are several national examinations of legal needs and access to justice.
- Summary of economic impact studies
- Legal Needs and Civil Justice: A Survey of Americans
- Agenda for Access: The American People and Civil Justice - Final Report on the Implications of the Comprehensive Legal Needs Study
- Access Across America (2011)
