Call to Action: Achieving Civil Justice for All

Recommendations to the Conference of Chief Justices by the Civil Justice Improvements Committee

Over the last two years, IAALS has worked alongside the National Center for State Courts to support the efforts of the Conference of Chief Justices’ Civil Justice Improvements Committee, which was formed in 2013 to examine the civil justice system and develop a comprehensive set of recommendations for civil justice reform to meet the needs of the 21st century.

The report and recommendations of that Committee were presented to and adopted by the Conference of Chiefs in July, 2016. Call to Action: Achieving Justice for All issues a call to action to the state courts to improve our civil justice system—and a strategic response in the form of thirteen recommendations for restoring function and faith in a system that is too important to lose.
