The Court’s Order recognizes that many low-income Oklahomans are unable to receive full representation on civil legal matters due to a lack of funding and fully integrated legal services delivery system.

The Court’s leadership in this effort will coordinate and expand the current efforts in our state to increase access to justice in civil matters in Oklahoma. The Access to Justice Commission will serve as a coordinator to assist all participants in developing strategic alliances to effectively move ideas into action.
