Senator Ann Rivers to be honored for promoting access to justice

Monday, June 5, 2017

Last Saturday, June 3, the state Access to Justice Board honored Sen. Ann Rivers with its “Access to Justice Community Leadership Award” for 2017. The award goes to a person outside the legal community who “has played a strategic, significant and courageous leadership role in improving access to the justice system for those who face economic or other significant barriers.” Rivers, R-La Center, was nominated for the honor by an official with the state Office of Civil Legal Aid, which is part of government’s judicial branch, and an Access to Justice board member. The state Supreme Court established the board in 1994, charging it with planning for the statewide delivery of civil legal aid services.
