Abstract: In this paper, we argue that legal education, regulation and government each have an important role to play in protecting access to justice. We examine the place of law school initiatives in promoting access to justice, and how attitudinal approaches within legal education can have a lasting and very real impact on litigants’ access to justice mechanisms. We also discuss how regulation, including the so-called ‘cab rank rule’ can promote access to justice, as well as the role of governmental policies on individuals’ abilities to vindicate their rights and/or resolve disputes through proper legal remedies.
