Midyear Meeting 2020: House of Delegates adopt policy to expand access to justice

The ABA governing body overwhelmingly adopted Resolution 115 to address the crisis of access to civil justice, encouraging states to adopt innovative approaches to expand legal services to more Americans.

The resolution, sponsored by the ABA Center for Innovation and supported by several standing committees of the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility, was hotly debated before it was revised and adopted Feb. 17 at the ABA Midyear Meeting in Austin, Texas.
