NEW BRUNSWICK – The April 2023 edition of New Jersey Lawyer revisits the topic of helping people and communities access justice.
The issue, published by the New Jersey State Bar Association, covers institutional or idiosyncratic roadblocks that people face in finding access to justice and equality. Two articles are dedicated to promoting better access to justice in housing, while other entries address a new law school requirement to provide bias education and how law firms can build sustainable pro bono programs.
The New Jersey Lawyer Editorial Board partnered with the NJSBA’s Pro Bono Committee to devote consecutive issues to the theme given its importance to society and the legal profession. The interest from the NJSBA community to contribute articles was also so overwhelming that the Editorial Board had enough submissions for multiple editions, according to Bill Singer and Nancy A. Del Pizzo, the special editors for the April edition.
Here is a full list of the articles in the edition:
• Access to Justice through Non-Access: New Jersey’s Sealing of Certain Landlord-Tenant Records–By Ariela Rutbeck-Goldman.
• Understanding Modern Anti-Eviction Act Can Help People Stay in Their Homes–By Gerald R. Brennan.
• Teaching Justice to Law Students: Implementing the New ABA Curriculum Requirements for Law Schools–By Lori Outzs Borgen.
• Applying the Collaborative Models Between Corporations and Science to Pro Bono Dream Teams–By Amy E. Vasquez.
• How to Do It: The Power of Pro Bono Partnerships–By Jessica Kitson and Jessica Hodkinson.
The edition also includes practice tips for how attorneys can navigate Microsoft Word, NJSBA President Jeralyn L. Lawrence’s perspective on the Association’s top achievements for New Jersey lawyers in the last year and an introduction to meditation for attorneys.
