Access to Justice

Access to Justice is a Jurisprudential Principal that underpins the notion that all should have access to justice regardless of race, gender, religion, creed, ability or economic prowess or lack thereof. We have established the Access to Justice foundation to enable activism and advocacy in the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Peacemaking.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution methods are used to resolve and settle disputes without resorting to more adversarial, costly and cumbersome methods such as litigation. Negotiation, Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration are all ADR methods.

Restorative Justice

Restorative Justice is an approach to the work of justice that seeks to make things right again. Punitive Justice seeks to find who committed a wrong and then figure out how to punish them. Restorative justice seeks to identify the harm, engage with all those affected and establish an approach that will bring about restoration for all involved including those who have harmed and those who have been harmed.

A JUSTICE THAT RESTORES

‘Our justice system (at the level of litigation) is based on competition.
So you can win, but you were wrong.
Or you can lose, but you were right.
And the win is based on who has the best lawyer.
And that is often based on who can afford the best lawyer.
And that is the system that decides who wins and who loses.
Our notions of justice have us believe that if you are wrong you must be punished. And if you are right, you must be rewarded.
And that’s how we’ve understood things: the good guys win and the bad guys lose.
It makes absolute sense-
Unless
You are losing
