Access to Justice BC is a network of people and organizations connecting with each other to realize a common vision — access to family and civil justice for all British Columbians.
What is access to justice?
Access to justice means enabling people to avoid, manage and resolve civil and family legal problems and disputes. This vision includes providing people with the information they need to understand the law, and supporting them to resolve their own disputes without having to go to court.
Access to Justice BC, or A2JBC, takes an expansive view of the BC family and civil justice system to include not just courts, but all services, institutions and organizations that support people in getting the skills, knowledge, resources and services they need to manage their legal problems.
The Unbundling Working Group
The A2JBC Unbundling Working Group consists of justice system stakeholders working to support and promote unbundling initiatives in BC. This website is one such initiative. Another priority of the Working Group is to engage law students, lawyers, law professors and other justice system stakeholders in a dialogue about other creative ways to practice law that match legal services supply with the existing unmet demand for legal services.
