As part of Fordham Law School’s Access to Justice Initiative, this discussion will feature perspectives from senior jurists and from a leading social scientist in the global access to justice research movement on formal and informal pathways to justice. The panelists will consider common challenges in the United States and globally to accessing justice—especially for marginalized people, including in racial, ethnic, or religious communities; the poor; people living in rural areas; women; LGBT people; and others. This lack of access impacts a wide range of civil rights and human rights. The panelists will identify common themes and consider solutions, including the pros and cons of using informal, versus formal, justice systems, and the intersection of those systems. The panel will work to sharpen the research, reform, and advocacy agenda going forward.
