A study on developing financially sustainable, scalable basic legal service models was launched at a Conference on Future Directions on Access to Justice: Scaling Access to Leave No-one Behind in Ottawa, Canada.
Naina Patel was the lead author of the Law and Development Partnership’s report on developing basic legal service models and presented the report’s findings in Ottawa. The report was commissioned by IDRC, the Open Society Foundations, and the Legal Education Foundation, with input from the UK’s Department for International Development. The report is expected to help donors, governments, and non-governmental actors determine new and systematic ways of scaling up basic legal services in a sustainable manner. Improving access to justice, in turn, will help states and their populations achieve their commitments made under the new SDGs.
