NH Bar Foundation: Measuring the Civil Justice Gap

A recent study funded by the New Hampshire Bar Foundation showed that NHBA Pro Bono, NH Legal Assistance, and the Legal Advice & Referral Center were able to fulfill only 6 percent of the demand for civil legal services among the state’s low-income residents in 2010.

The legal needs assessment funded by the NHBF estimated that 149,101 low-income residents had civil legal problems in 2010 involving benefits, housing, child support and other issues. Of those, only 8,403 received help from the three primary legal services providers in the state. That means that the vast majority of low-income citizens in NH lack meaningful access to our justice system.

Find out more about the legal needs study conducted by the NH Bar Foundation.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
