Access to Justice in the U.S. & the Developing World

This course will address current issues in access to justice in the U.S. and in developing countries. “Access to Justice” is a broad concept that includes issues ranging from the ability of people to experience justice in their daily interactions with each other, with government, and in our courts, to the provision of services that enable them to enforce recognition and implementation of their human rights. “Access” implicates the ability of people to realize the promises of justice made to them through recognition of their humanity, and by constitutions and legislation. “Justice” includes basic concepts of human rights, equity, fairness and due process.
