I made another visual based on a short questionnaire I ran back in November-December last year, on people’s thoughts on Access to Justice. Earlier visuals of the questionnaire responses are here (Is there a coherent Access to Justice Movement?) and here (What’s going wrong with the Access to Justice Movement?)
I asked respondents where they would spend a hypothetical $10 million on Access, to see what kind of ideas & priorities would emerge. Here are the responses.
You can see some clear priorities emerging:
- Experimentation in new legal services
- Scaling up tech-based legal platforms to cover more jurisdictions, reach more users
- Providing more one-to-one assistance to people going through legal processes
- Public legal education
- Establishing a ‘Brand’ for legal services
If you have other projects that you would fund with $10 million, leave your thoughts in the comments. There must be other agenda points, add them to this first collection of funding priorities.
