Press coverage for the National Center for Access to Justice‘s newly launched Justice Index has been very positive. Especially notable are comprehensive pieces in the National Law Journal (print edition, Monday, March 3, 2014) and New York Law Journal (print edition, Wednesday, February 28, 2014). The ALM publication Law & Technology covered the Justice Index, as did the tech blog Open Law and AccesstoJustice.Net.
Reception within and around the courts has been positive and proactive. The National Center for Access to Justice has gathered statements of national experts attesting to the value of the Justice Index as a resource for promoting reform, available here.
