Helping Ourselves to Justice: Perspectives on Legal Self-Help
24 February 2021 • 11h (ET)
Alyse Bertenthal, Assistant Professor of Law, Wake Forest University
We often discuss access to justice in the context of courtrooms and legal cases. This presentation focuses on how people access justice outside of those contexts. Drawing from ethnographic research in two disparate areas – a legal self-help clinic and among communities fighting for environmental justice – this presentation considers what it means to help one’s self to justice, as well as what (and who) can help to do so.
