of people in civil cases go to court without a lawyer. SRLN connects lawyers,
judges and allied professionals who are creating innovative and evidence-based
solutions so that self-represented litigants have meaningful access to the
courts and can get the legal help they need.
Founded in 2001,
SRLN is a network of innovative lawyers, judges, court staff, legal
technologists, librarians and other allied professionals who believe everyone
deserves access to justice. We are working to transform the American legal
system so that every person who faces a civil legal issue can get the legal
help they need, understand court proceedings and get a decision on the merits.
We accomplish this by advancing innovative access-oriented solutions such as
comprehensive court and legal aid self-help services, simplified court rules
and procedure, and integrated systems that efficiently and effectively connect
people who need lawyers to lawyers. SRLN has coordinated numerous services and
activities to shape the national conversation. These include:
Hosting a robust online resource center that
includes training curricula, best-practice manuals, toolkits, email lists and
Monitoring trends and events, and providing
updates and analysis.
Coordinating substantive working groups with
reform agendas chaired by national leaders in the areas of courtroom services
and case management, federal courts, forms and technology, and other areas.
Publishing scholarly articles, studies and
reports that are distinguished by their innovative thought leadership and
analysis of emerging practices.
Conducting research and evaluation to support
evidence-based practice, innovation and sustained excellence.
Providing training and education through regular
conferences and webinars.
