Network of justice system professionals who believe all people should have access to the legal help they need, when they need it, in a format they can use.

Presence in: United States
Focus: Generalist Legal Services, Other, Right to Information

The Self-Represented Litigation Network (SRLN), a managed 501c(3) project of The New Venture Fund, supports justice system professionals focused on the question of how best to reform and re-align ALL aspects of the legal system (courts, legal aid, the private bar, non-lawyer partners and social service providers) so that SRLs experience the courts (and indeed the legal system) as a consumer oriented environment guided by the principles of equal protection and due process.

We provide peer networking and training, as well as serve as a resource center and knowledge hub.

Our vision is that every person gets the legal help they need, when they need it, in a format they can use.

Our mission is to foster access to justice leadership and facilitate the adoption of consumer oriented best practices among court, advocacy and service partners to create a fair, efficient and effective civil justice system for all and, through reform, close the justice gap.

To accomplish this we provide the civil justice sector:

  • a neutral forum to facilitate networking among reform minded leaders throughout the country and to identify and promote evidence based best practices to create a 100% access to justice ecosystem;
  • resources to support thought leadership, training, evaluation, implementation of self-help services and reforms[1] and optimized use of technology; and
  • a geospatial data and analysis hub for the civil justice space.
