Main Content

Civil justice is the fair and equitable resolution of common civil issues related to topics such as health, housing, employment, marriage, education, child welfare, and money, among others. Growing demand for affordable and effective civil legal services has challenged legal service providers, advocates, and other stakeholders to develop new approaches to achieve justice for all. Seeking to better understand these innovations and prospects for transforming the field of civil justice, NORC at the University of Chicago undertook an assessment of current developments. Our goal was to describe how civil justice leaders see the future, identify the range of approaches to civil justice used today, and develop recommendations to guide and accelerate the significant changes, reforms, and innovations seeking a modern, fair, and equitable civil justice system. Support for this project was provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts and The Kresge Foundation.

From December 2018 to May 2019, NORC interviewed a sample of national civil justice leaders about their work, perspectives on civil justice, and visions of a modern civil justice system. While the qualitative findings from the interviews were the core of our assessment, we also examined recent peer-reviewed and gray literature on civil justice. We reviewed recent articles and reports to gather context, supplement and clarify issues, histories, and approaches to civil justice raised in interviews.
