Mind the (Justice) Gap: Addressing North Carolina's Unmet Legal Needs


In April 2021, the NC Equal Access to Justice Commission and NC Equal Justice Alliance published the first comprehensive legal needs assessment of our state in almost 20 years. A staggering percentage of North Carolinians must navigate complex civil legal issues each year without the benefit of representation, and this report illuminates the challenges and barriers that result in substantial unmet legal needs.

This presentation highlights key findings from the legal needs assessment and explore local and national efforts to address the access to justice gap.
