Why should an Access to Justice Commission evaluate its projects? Self-assessment is often not the norm in the public sector, including among organizations such as Access to Justice Commissions. Self-assessment has long been recognized, however, as an essential ingredient of good management and the stewardship of scarce resources. It is also becoming a norm as publicly funded endeavors are increasingly called on to assess the impact of their efforts and to demonstrate that they have been successful.
