The Oklahoma Access to Justice Foundation (OATJ) manages several programs seeking to increase meaningful participation in a fair and accessible civil justice system. These include the Oklahoma Community Justice Network, a statewide pro bono portal (okprobono.org), annual law firm and law school pro bono challenges, a public legal education effort with the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, the Legal Services Network of Oklahoma, active support of the Oklahoma Access to Justice Commission, and collaborative work with the Oklahoma Bar Association and others on improving court forms. In partnership with Legal Link, OATJ has developed Oklahoma’s “Legal First Aid” training program – the Oklahoma Community Justice Network (OCJN). The OCJN training program increases the ability of front-line social services staff to effectively support their clients when navigating legal issues and challenges.
