    Our Organization

    IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, is a nonpartisan, nonprofit research institution at the University of Denver that is committed to increasing fairness, efficiency, accessibility, and the public’s trust in the civil justice system.

    People look to our justice system for relief in matters that affect their rights, their businesses, and the most intimate aspects of their lives; however, barriers and inefficiencies are effectively denying them real access. IAALS empowers judges, lawyers, businesspeople, and everyday users to put the best ideas into practice. Relying on empirical evidence to inform real-world solutions, IAALS is changing how our system serves people today while anticipating future needs—working tirelessly to increase access to justice.

    Our Work

    IAALS works on solving problems within the legal system: both in the courts and in the delivery of legal services more broadly. We conduct comprehensive analysis and work with stakeholders to design models, empower decision-makers, and measure outcomes and impacts to advance a trusted American legal system.

    A trusted and trustworthy legal system is essential to our democracy, our economy, and our freedom. But the American legal system is in a state of unprecedented change and challenge. Some 80 percent of Americans have legal needs that go unmet. Some 76 percent of state civil cases have a litigant on at least one side without lawyer representation. Businesses routinely choose arbitration rather than using the courts, jury trials are disappearing, and public confidence in our legal system is low.

    Justice, the courts, and legal services must be accessible—and they are not. The problems are complex and multi-dimensional, and we are committed to comprehensive, balanced, and inclusive solutions across the American legal system. We conduct comprehensive analyses and work with stakeholders to design models, empower decision-makers, and measure outcomes and impacts to advance a trusted American legal system. IAALS has on-going projects in the areas of judicial reform, civil justice reform, family justice reform, legal education, and the reregulation of the legal profession. We encourage applicants to learn more about our work iaals.du.edu.
