Problems with civil legal implications are incredibly common in everyday life. Yet only a fraction of individuals who experience a civil legal problem will engage legal actors or institutions to address it. While some individuals are able to obtain satisfying and just outcomes without recourse to law, others are not. How do individuals’ knowledge and beliefs about law and legal institutions influence their behavior? How are these beliefs formed? What does this tell us about things we can do to enhance access to civil justice? This conference will bring together leading scholars to address these questions about how individuals think about law and the implications for access to civil justice. The conference will include several paper workshopping sessions, followed by a public panel presentation and reception. Papers presented at the conference will be eligible for inclusion in a symposium issue of the UCI Law Review.
