This paper presents recommendations for measuring the impact of court reform in England and Wales on Access to Justice. It identifies an irreducible minimum standard of access to justice – derived from existing case law- that should be used to assess the impact of changes to the justice system. The paper also proposes definitions of “vulnerability” and “fairness” which should be incorporated into any evaluation framework.
