D.C. Access to Justice Commission Board

The D.C. Access to Justice Commission was created by the D.C. Court of Appeals in 2005 to help improve the ability of low- and moderate-income residents to access the civil justice system. The Commission also is responsible for raising the profile in our community of the need for equal access to justice. Established initially for a three-year term, the Court, in 2007, ordered the Commission's work to continue indefinitely.

The Commission has twenty-four Commissioners, including D.C. Court of Appeals and Superior Court judges, past Presidents of the D.C. Bar, Executive Directors of leading legal services providers, corporate counsel, and other community leaders. It is chaired by Georgetown University Law Professor, Peter Edelman. Commissioners are appointed by the Court for three-year terms.

"Stacy's talents, creativity, commitment, and broad experience in both direct client advocacy and policy work will make her an excellent addition to the Access to Justice Commission," CUA Law Professor Catherine Klein said.
