This collection of essays brings together radical, exciting and innovative ways to reform and improve access to justice. Contributors were charged to come up with ‘radical, exciting and innovative ways to reform and improve access to justice’.
A tough challenge. Closing the Justice Gap is about looking forward and generating a debate about how best to improve access to justice. To this end, we (respectfully) set our distinguished collection of essayists some strict ground rules. We wanted to pre-empt the easy criticism that such discussions are all about lawyers’ pay. So we insisted that all contributions ‘must be in the client interest, forward-thinking and positive. There must be no point scoring and no complaining about fees’.
