Access to Justice
The State Bar of Arizona has incorporated Access to Justice in its mission statement and continues to expand its efforts to help at-risk Arizonans, consistent with the "devotion to the public good" included in the Lawyer's Creed of Professionalism.
The State Bar takes part in a number of projects that help people in Arizona access legal services. Lawyers on Call and Abogados a Su Lado are partnerships with local television stations that use volunteer attorneys to answer viewer's legal questions. The State Bar's Law Day program organizes legal clinics throughout the state.
The Bar formed the Access to Justice Task Force in 2011. According to its mission statement, it was created to "seek to develop additional consensus on funding source proposals and law reform efforts, and will propose a series of solutions, some of which the Bar may be expected to develop on its own, and other of which would require a partnership with the judicial, legislative or executive branches."
