Access to Justice Board
Recognizing that access to the civil justice system is a fundamental right, the Access to Justice Board works to achieve equal access for those facing economic and other significant barriers.
The Washington State Access to Justice Board was established by a Washington Supreme Court Order in 1994. Through its justice system partners and standing committees, it works to achieve equal access to the civil justice system for those facing economic and other significant barriers.
