By many measures, lawyers’ “access to justice” initiatives are entirely ineffective: 

• A study (PDF) from the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the  Delivery of Legal Services found that highvolume state courts are at “saturation level” of pro se litigants. 

• According to the 2012-2013 World Justice Project’s Rule of Law Index (PDF), more than four out of five lowincome litigants in the United States go it alone because they feel priced out of the legal market.
