Access to Justice

When ILAC first assessed Liberia’s judicial process in 2003, at the invitation of the Liberian UN Mission, we found that a key barrier to accessing justice were the painfully slow court proceedings.

One of the many areas the ILAC Liberia program addressed, ILAC launched a court reporting project with the James A. Pierce Judicial Institute that, according to one judge, improved the efficiency of his court from managing 1-2 trials every 42 days to managing 5-6.
