The South Carolina Access to Justice Commission Announces its Final Public Hearing at the Supreme Court of South Carolina

The South Carolina Access to Justice Commission was established by the Supreme Court of South Carolina in January 2007 to expand and enhance access to civil legal representation for South Carolinians with low income or of modest means.

 This spring, the Commission conducted seven regional public hearings across South Carolina.  During these regional hearings, the Commission learned about the many barriers facing South Carolinians with low income.  South Carolina citizens, legal service providers, lawyers and other interested parties addressed the Commission about these barriers and in some instances, offered possible solutions.

The final hearing will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 5, 2008 at the South Carolina Supreme Court.

The Commission and selected speakers from the seven regional hearings will address the Supreme Court of South Carolina regarding the barriers and issues that were identified during the previous hearings. 

The hearing will be held in the Courtroom of the Supreme Court Building in Columbia, South Carolina.  Address: 1231 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201.

Members of the bench, bar and public are invited to attend this hearing.

The South Carolina Access to Justice Commission is funded by an IOLTA grant from the South Carolina Bar Foundation.
