At its second meeting held on May 15, 2015, the Commission voted to support, in concept, the creation of a statewide gateway portal and to direct the subcommittee to develop an implementation plan. The subcommittee reported that substantial progress has been made toward the development of the statewide gateway portal. The gateway portal concept is being designed to provide all individuals with a way of effective and meaningful access to civil justice. For Floridians falling into the civil justice gap who do not, or cannot, find the assistance they need, the gateway portal will serve as an online connector to existing information/resources, self-help, advice, and/or representation. This gateway will span a wide range of information and service entities including, but not limited to, legal aid organizations, court self-help centers, Florida’s Elder Law Hotline, law school clinics, law libraries, and lawyer referral service.
