In 2014, the National Center for Access to Justice at Fordham Law School published the first Justice Index, measuring and comparing the effectiveness of all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico to provide access to justice. In 2016, they published updated findings using four measurement categories: Attorney Access, Assistance to Self-Represented Litigants, Language Access and Disability Access. Learn South Carolina's rank, and how we can improve our standing.
