Justice Gap Study

AJ4A > Justice Gap Study

In 2006, we commissioned the first in-depth research of the legal needs of low-income Utahns. Published in 2007, the publication illustrates how large the Justice Gap really is. The following statistics provide a glimpse of the somber picture:

LOW-INCOME HOUSEHOLDS WHO FACED A CIVIL LEGAL DISPUTE IN 2006

FELT NOTHING COULD BE DONE TO HELP TO HELP THEM

RECEIVED HELP FROM AN ATTORNEY ON A LEGAL MATTER

WERE NOT AWARE OF A FREE LEGAL SERVICES PROGRAM

DID NOT GET HELP BECAUSE THEY FEARED HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST

NUMBER OF LEGAL NEEDS NOT BEING MET EACH YEAR

The barriers illustrated in this research for Utah families struggling to make ends meet can be overcome as we continue to support civil justice reform and civil legal aid. Learn more about how you can make a difference today.
