Most of the current deregulation discussion focuses on permitting both non-lawyers and lawyers to do more than currently authorized. While such changes would presumably contribute to solving the problem of increasing access to justice while maintaining quality and consumer protection, such discussions alone are unable to offer any realistic hope of achieving the 100% access to justice services for all envisioned by the recent Resolution of the Conference of (State Court) Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators. This paper discusses the potential for fully achieving that 100% goal by integrating broad regulatory changes with economic incentives on courts, bar and legal aid to increase efficiency and reduce costs, and with politically achievable ways of bringing in additional resources.
