Panelists will also discuss the recommendations contained within the recent Access to Justice Commission Staffing and Funding report from the ABA Resource Center for Access to Justice Initiatives, lessons and findings from the Justice For All state reports, next steps for the Justice For All project, and where the future lies for these efforts for other states.
