Proposal Submission

To submit a proposal to participate as a presenter at the forum, please complete the online form linked below.

Please note that all presenters must plan to attend the conference in person. We invite presentations from scholars; researchers; legal practitioners; court, tribunal, and dispute resolution staff; and other legal service providers from around the world on a range of topics relating to access to civil justice. Topics of particular interest include:

  • New data or empirical analysis regarding the prevalence of civil legal problems, perceptions or understandings of legal matters, or behavior taken in response to justiciable events;
  • Legal professional regulatory reform, alternative legal service providers, and innovative legal service partnerships;
  • The role of legal technology in enhancing access to justice;
  • Access to justice in the face of climate change, global conflict, and economic change;
  • Interventions and approaches to enhance equality in access to civil justice for underserved groups; and
  • The place of access to justice in legal education.

We ask that you please provide your contact information as well as a brief description of your professional role and/or source of expertise regarding access to justice. Your abstract (max. 3000 characters) should clearly identify your proposed topic and key findings or learnings. The conference organizers will review proposals on a rolling basis. The deadline for proposals is May 31, 2023. We ask that all presenters whose proposals are accepted for presentation please register for the conference as early as possible and no later than June 30, 2023.
