The Supreme Court of Nevada created a permanent Access to Justice Commission (Commission) in August 2006. The Commission‘s members include judges, attorneys and corporate partners. The Commission is supported by a Director who is employed by the State Bar of Nevada. In accordance with Rule 15 of the Supreme Court of Nevada, the commission is responsible for assessing the needs of Nevadans with limited means for legal services and developing statewide policies to further access to justice. In 2007, Nevada became one of many states to endeavor to assess the needs of residents related to access to justice. Many efforts across the country have documented the lack of access to justice and can be used to compare the results of this report.
