ABA Midyear Meeting
Posted Feb 06, 2017 09:52 am CST
The ABA House of Delegates has adopted Resolution 102, a policy urging state courts to develop and implement improvements in the delivery of civil justice.
The policy relies on guidance from the recommendations of the report “Call to Action: Achieving Civil Justice for All” (PDF), which was endorsed by the Conference of Chief Justices. Further, the resolution urges bar associations to promote those recommendations. The the Conference of Chief Justices asked the Institute for Advancement of the American Legal System and the National Center for State Courts to help name the 23-member committed that prepared the report. Those recommendations ask that state courts “consider” the its recommendations, each of which highlights a number of possibilities. Further, the report calls for collaboration between bar associations, practitioners and judges in doing so.
