In October 2018, the Commission received a grant from the National Center for State Courts to develop a Strategic Action Plan for New Mexico using the Justice for All framework.

The Justice for All Initiative is an exciting project launched by the National Center for State Courts to help states develop meaningful, actionable plans to ensure that 100% of people with essential civil legal needs have access to help. The initiative prioritizes collaboration and coordination with non-legal community providers. It also identifies several high value "components" that states can focus on to deliver access to the court system.

The rising number of people in poverty, the increase of self-represented litigants in our state courts, and severe funding deficiencies take our civil justice system further than ever from fulfilling the promise of equal access to justice.

Check out our 2018 meeting minutes for more detail about the Commission's work on this initiative to date. The Commission will present a draft of the Strategic Action Plan to the Supreme Court in 2019. We hope this plan will re-configure how New Mexicans are able to access help for their essential civil legal needs.

The Justice for All project seeks to enhance states’ commitment to reimagining how to work across organizational boundaries and optimize all available resources to advance access to justice for all.
