Access to justice is central to the mission of the courts. Although the right to counsel is guaranteed to indigent defendants in criminal cases, many Americans still navigate critical civil legal issues without legal representation or assistance. This course introduces the “civil justice gap,” or the unmet civil legal needs of Americans, as well as the laws and policies that have helped close the civil justice gap in California and beyond. This course next examines some historic reasons for today’s civil justice gap and its disparate impacts on members of protected groups. Drawing on international case studies, this course compares the pro bono approach prevalent in the United States to the legal aid approach prevalent in other countries. During the semester, students will have opportunities to sharpen their critical reading and writing skills; learn to better express themselves orally; and develop and execute their own research project.
As a result of this course, students can expect to be able to:
· Define and measure the civil justice gap, identifying disparate impacts on members of protected groups;
· Distinguish between the right to counsel in civil as opposed to criminal cases;
· Explain historic reasons for today’s civil justice gap;
· Compare access to justice projects in the United States to those in other countries;
· Evaluate policies designed to close the civil justice gap in California and beyond.
