Access to Justice

Wednesday, 4/20 to 5/11, 4 sessions, 1 - 2:30

  • Kennard African American Cultural Heritage Center

Class Description

We will address topics that include the idea of Access to Justice and what that means for low- and moderate-income residents of the Eastern Shore. We will delve into the idea of "civil right to counsel" and the notion of access to legal assistance as a right and not a privilege. Participants will engage in robust discussion about the definitions and perceptions of justice, social justice and civil justice. We will delve into challenges and barriers that most Eastern Shore residents face and also try to conceptualize solutions that can be shared with the civil legal aid community. Instructor: Sandy Brown
