Description: Presentation for the 2019 University of North Texas Open Access Symposium. This presentation argues that open access to legal information drives access to justice. Based on the first hand experience of one of the busiest public law libraries in the country, leveraging technology and library budgets to move legal forms and information from behind paywalls can open the courthouse doors for those who cannot afford legal representation. Speakers provide practical examples from their experiences at a metropolitan public law library to showcase the opportunities for bridging justice gaps with open access.
