Riding the Third Wave: Rethinking Criminal Legal Aid within an Access to Justice Framework

Figure 1 – An Access to Justice Model of Criminal Legal Aid

Figure 1 is a target diagram that illustrates the various levels of legal aid service. The diagram is structured like an actual target with concentric circles moving outward representing each successive level of service. The inner circle, or the “core,” represents “individual case advocacy.” The circles progress outward, with the second circle representing “systemic advocacy,” the third circle representing “holistic advocacy” and the fourth and final circle representing “justice system advocacy.”
