Shaping policy, raising funds, connecting and educating legal aid providers, and promoting public awareness of access to justice issues: these are just a few of the ways in which the Commission works to ensure that the judicial system hears the voices of all Texans.
FOCUS ON JUSTICE
LEGAL ASSISTANCE HELPS US ALL
For many low-income Texans, legal representation means a place to live, access to health care, or a united family. Equal access to justice doesn’t just help people living in poverty. Justice for all is the foundation of a stable civil society.
A GREAT STATE NEEDS GREAT LAWYERS
Are you ready to Champion for Justice?
Funding for civil legal aid has dropped dramatically in recent years. We are grateful to our champions in the legal community who keep the doors to justice open through their commitment of time and financial support.
…AND ACCESS FOR ALL
“Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building; it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists. It is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.”
- Justice Lewis Powell, Jr.
From our family to yours, thank you for everything you do to make Texas a great place to call home.
