There are two articles today about access to justice.
The first is out of a fellow southern state, Tennessee. The Tennessee High Court has changed to a Female Majority – a first in the South. The article also recognizes the “current mantra of the state’s Supreme Court centers on access to justice.”

The second article comes out of the nation’s capitol – Washington, D.C.
The D.C. Access to Justice Commission released a report yesterday. It highlights a “125-page study found that poorer D.C. residents are not adequately represented in a variety of proceedings.”
