Trial Court Strategic Plan - Introduction
A new strategic plan is being implemented that will guide the Trial Court in addressing the evolving needs of the people of Massachusetts.
The goal of the strategic plan is to achieve the delivery of justice with dignity and speed.
Access to Justice
Access to Justice is a core value of the Massachusetts Judicial Branch.
Towards that end, in June, 2009 the Chief Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court and the Trial Court established the Access to Justice Initiative. A number of the features on the Massachusetts Courts website were implemented as a result of the initiative including:
- Developing a language access plan (also in Spanish );
- Providing self-help information including videos;
- Expanding lawyer for a day programs and limited assistance representation ;
- Standardizing ADA compliance
