Arkansas Equal Justice Watch was launched on January 12, 2009, by the Arkansas Access to Justice Commission. We hope that you'll use this site to follow Arkansas' 2009 Legislative Session and ensure that your district's representatives put Arkansans first.

Many Arkansans live on the edge, with too little education, income, or economic power to secure positive results for their lives.  When these citizens encounter conflicts in life, as we all do, they cannot turn to the justice system for help because they have no discretionary funds to do so.  Instead they must rely on the largely federally funded system of free civil legal aid. 

That system at current funding levels has to turn away nearly 50% of those seeking help. This website is designed to focus attention on that Justice Gap by informing the People of Arkansas about what is being accomplished now, who is being helped, the needs still outstanding, and the impact of not doing more to provide access to justice. 

Justice is an important principle in our Constitutional Republic and in our State.  Arkansas Equal Justice Watch strives to make that principle a reality.

 

Our Mission: 
Encouraging Arkansas Leaders to Uphold Equal Justice
