What is Justice Equity?
Justice equity is the principle that all Americans should be afforded equal access to our judicial system. This includes not only access to the courts, but also access to the tools and assistance necessary for all members of our community to effectively advocate for their rights. Westlaw Correctional advances this tenet.
At-risk and underserved communities need access to the best tools available, including law library resources on par with modern legal standards—such as machine learning, artificial-intelligence aided search engines—in order to effectively represent themselves. Westlaw Correctional delivers on all of these points.
Inmates with access to modernized tools show a far greater record of rehabilitation and reduced recidivism.
