As an essential human right, much has been written about access to justice. Still, too many poor people lack this essential access all over the world when they face major life challenges. The issue confronts people experiencing poverty around the globe, as well as close to home.

Access to justice for the most vulnerable is as encompassing as our country is diverse, affecting all races, ethnic groups, and ages. Victims of domestic violence, people with disabilities, homeowners facing foreclosure, renters facing eviction, families with or without children, and veterans all struggle to gain access to justice.

This paper is about access to the justice system for refugees in Buffalo.
