The Nebraska Access to Justice Commission, formed by the Nebraska Supreme Court in 2017, received the Omaha Bar Association’s 2021 Robert M. Spire Public Service Award.
Professors Stefanie Pearlman and Kevin Ruser, along with several Nebraska Law alumni and area attorneys serve on the Commission upon appointment from the Chief Justice of the Nebraska Supreme Court.
The Nebraska Access to Justice Commission promotes the Nebraska Supreme Court’s goal of providing equal access to swift, fair justice for all Nebraskans regardless of income, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, age or language. The Commission has four standing committees: Self-Represented Litigation Committee; Committee on Equity and Fairness; Consortium of Tribal, State, and Federal Courts; and Language Access Committee.
