Abstract

This article provides a comparative analysis of civil justice reforms in common law jurisdictions in the two decades since the mid-1980s, with an emphasis on the earlier 'access to justice' reforms, and it examines the implications of those reforms on the role of legal professionals and for law schools attempting to formulate a responsive curriculum.
