Oklahoma Access to Justice Commission

Improving Access to Justice in Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Access to Justice Commission was created to develop and implement policy initiatives designed to expand access to and enhance the quality of justice in civil legal matters for low-income Oklahoma residents.

Nearly 80% of all legal need goes unmet. Oklahomans deserve better.

If you have a legal question, these resources may be able to help.

Interested attorneys can e-mail the Commission to get involved.

Help the Commission with its mission to improve access to justice.


"Access to justice” describes the ability of any person, regardless of income, to use the justice system to solve common legal problems and advocate for themselves and their interests. Oklahomans turn to the civil justice system when they are facing life-changing challenges such as domestic violence, child custody disputes, unlawful evictions, discrimination, consumer debt, or the loss of veterans’, health, or disability benefits. Unlike the criminal justice system, there is no right to an attorney in civil justice matters.
