ALI Members Contribute to Dædalus “Access to Justice”

“Access to Justice,” the most recent and the first open-access issue of Dædalus,is now available. Founded in 1955, Dædalusis a quarterly journal from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences which embodies the spirit of its ancient Greek namesake by pushing boundaries, exploring uncharted areas of knowledge and examining issues of public importance.

The issue, co-edited by former ALI Director Lance M. Liebman of Columbia Law School, features a collection of twenty-four essays that “examine the national crisis in civil legal services facing poor and low-income Americans: from the challenges of providing quality legal assistance to more people, to the social and economic costs of an often unresponsive legal system, to the opportunities for improvement offered by new technologies, professional innovations, and fresh ways of thinking about the crisis.”

All essays in the Winter 2019 issue of Dædalus are freely accessible.  The Introduction was authored by ALI member John G. Levi of Sidley Austin  and David Rubensteiln of the Carlyle Group, ALI's 2018 Annual Meeting dinner speaker.
