The Wyoming Supreme Court created the Access to Justice Commission on December 16, 2008, finding that "Wyoming's justice system is based on the principle of equal justice for all people" and recognizing the need to coordinate the efforts of providers of civil legal services in the state. The Supreme Court set four priorities for the Commission:
The Wyoming Access to Justice Commission will:
Evaluate the specific legal needs of low and moderate income people in Wyoming and identify strategies for addressing them;
Provide long-range, integrated planning among the numerous legal assistance providers and other interested agencies and entities in Wyoming;
Coordinate access to civil justice, foster the development of a statewide integrated civil legal services delivery system, and design and implement new programs to expand access to justice opportunities; [and]
4. Work toward securing adequate funding for access to civil justice.
