Labarga to Launch Access to Civil Justice Commission
Florida Chief Justice Jorge Labarga will formally sign an administrative order creating the Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice at a ceremony 10:00 a.m. Monday, Nov. 24, 2014, in the rotunda of the Florida Supreme Court Building in Tallahassee.
The Commission first was announced by Labarga when he took the Oath of Office as Chief Justice on June 30. It will be the major initiative of his two-year administration.
The Commission will study the unmet civil legal needs of disadvantaged, low-income, and moderate-income Floridians. Its work will include a close look at improving existing legal programs, developing solutions based on new technology, and exploring other ways to meet the needs of Floridians caught in the current civil legal services gap.
