Join the American Society of International Law as it welcomes ABA ROLI (American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative) and its presentation of the Access to Justice Assessment Tool to the public for the first time. ABA ROLI's civil society partners from Guinea, Indonesia, Mali, and the Philippines will share findings from their research, as well as views from the field on improving access to justice. Featured speaker and legal empowerment expert Stephen Golub will also give a keynote address on emerging innovations in legal empowerment and access to justice. The Access to Justice Assessment Tool is one in a series of assessment tools developed by experts in technical legal assistance and law reform at the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI). The Tool is a research methodology to assess to what extent communities and individuals are able to use justice institutions to solve common justice problems. The Access to Justice Assessment Tool has enabled civil society organizations in countries around the world to conduct professional-quality research on access to justice and to design effective reforms and programming to address access to justice challenges in their communities. Using the Access to Justice Assessment Tool, ABA ROLI’s civil society partners have made important discoveries and generated knowledge with the potential to improve access to justice for the poor and the marginalized. Featured speaker and legal empowerment expert, Stephen Golub, will also give a keynote address on emerging innovations in legal empowerment and access to justice.
