Cost of Justice Panel Presentations at 50th Annual Law & Society Conference
The papers from that panel are available on the CFCJ website:
"Research on access to justice - at the local, national, and international levels - has often noted the conflict between initiatives to improve access and limits to the funding of those initiatives. The papers presented in this panel address this tension in a variety of settings and locations, and seek to push into new conceptualizations and approaches to the "cost of justice". These papers explore conceptual boundaries between cost and justice - including the costs of injustice - in a wide range of sites, including rights of indigenous peoples, how private lawyers manage the costs of providing services, how demands for justice change over the life course, and new findings on the cost of unmet legal needs."
