Last week, IAALS and HiiL released the results of our US Justice Needs study, a groundbreaking effort to assess the justice needs of all Americans—of all backgrounds, income levels, and across all regions of the country. This landmark report has been years in the making, and the wealth of data will be used for targeted reforms to improve access to justice nationwide.

We’ve already seen incredible enthusiasm around this research, and we invite you to learn more in the newsletter below. We also hope you’ll join us on September 15 for a special webinar with experts from key justice institutions and perspectives to speak about the study results and its crucial implications for access-to-justice policy in the United States. Our work with the US Justice Needs data is ongoing, with more information and resources coming soon.
