The Coalition for Court Access was created by the Supreme Court of Indiana on May 17, 2016 to provide focused and comprehensive organizational structure for Indiana’s civil legal aid programs. The seventeen-member Coalition will coordinate all Supreme Court related programs designed to provide civil legal aid to those with limited financial resources. The Coalition includes judges, law school representatives, civil legal aid and pro bono providers, and Indiana State Bar Association and Foundation members.
The Coalition for Court Access Summer Fellowship program is a trial project to survey and inventory resources, needs, issues, and concerns that affect or impact court access in Indiana counties as part of the CCA’s overall mission to study, refine, and enhance access to the courts and law and justice resources. In the summer of 2017, volunteer fellows will work to engage law students and professors, lawyers, judges, court staff, and other stakeholders in discussions and assessments of access to justice issues in Indiana counties and to provide a baseline for future work by the CCA.
