Ensuring Meaningful Access to the Courts: A New Three-Year Strategic Plan


July 28, 2020

The Cover to Access to Justice Commission's  2020-2023 Strategic PlanIn May, the Illinois Supreme Court approved the Access to Justice Commission's 2020-2023 Strategic Plan. The Plan details principles, initiatives, and activities for ensuring meaningful access to the Courts. The plan builds on the existing work of the Commission and the growing statewide momentum towards enhancing access to justice and improving the court user experience.

A special thanks to the Commission's Strategic Planning Committee, chaired by Jennifer Nijman, for their advice and guidance in drafting this Plan. We thank all of the hard-working volunteers from across the state who are members of the Commission's committees and subcommittees for their dedication to our initiatives (See pages 49-55 for a list of the volunteers).

The Access to Justice Commission's quarterly newsletter highlights work that is underway in furtherance of the Plan's mission. For more information, please contact Alison Spanner at
