Equal Access to Justice Partners
In addition to IOLTA grantees, NC IOLTA works with a variety of partners across the state to promote access to the justice system for all.
North Carolina Equal Access to Justice Commission
The mission of the North Carolina Equal Access to Justice Commission is to expand access to the civil justice system for people of low income and modest means in North Carolina. The commission, which is chaired by Chief Justice Mark Martin, was established in November 2005 by a North Carolina Supreme Court order. The commission is composed of dedicated bar and bench leaders from a broad range of organizations. Visit ncequalaccesstojustice.org for more information.

NC Access to Justice Campaign
The goal of the NC Access to Justice Campaign is to increase resources for legal aid organizations that help low-income North Carolinians with critical legal issues. The campaign is the combined effort of Legal Aid of North Carolina, Legal Services of Southern Piedmont, and Pisgah Legal Services. The campaign seeks to increase volunteer and monetary support of civil legal aid to the poor in North Carolina, provide information to the North Carolina General Assembly about the importance and cost-effectiveness of civil legal aid to the poor, and to raise public awareness about the need for civil legal services.
