Access Commission leaders across the country were interviewed by phone regarding their vision for their Commission, including both their short term goals and their longer term plans for their commission as well as what kind of support was needed to help them achieve that vision. They were also asked about initiatives that would involve fundamental, systemic changes to increase access to justice, and about how we could strengthen the national access to justice network. Finally, they were asked for their input on the design of the 2015 Chairs meeting.
