This self-assessment tool is presented in three different formats, each of which is designed to serve a separate purpose: 1) The first is a Checklist of characteristics of an effective Access to Justice Commission that can be used by the Commission’s leadership, members, staff and others informally to assess its operations and provide guidance for its future activities. 2) The second uses the Checklist as a template for a Survey that can be administered to individual Access to Justice Commission Members, staff, partners or others as part of an assessment of a Commission’s operations. 3) The third presents a Planning Template for recording proposed strategies to respond to identified areas of strength and weakness.
