Partnering Together to Provide

Equal Access to Justice

As part of the charge of the Access to Justice Commission, the Workgroup on Libraries & Access to Justice was tasked with coordinating a “Justice Fair” focusing on access to justice issues that Connecticut’s self-represented population face. In furtherance of this goal, the Workgroup is focusing on increasing access to justice and meaningful access to our courts through education and outreach to our public and law library community by increasing resources and fostering collaborative relationships.

The Justice Fair joins together Connecticut’s public libraries, academic, and courthouse law libraries, Court Service Centers, the legal aid community, and appropriate Judicial Branch representatives to engage in a dialogue about how we can all work together to help narrow the justice gap.
