World Justice Project’s Rule of Law Index
Just a quick note on the findings of the World Justice Project’s “Rule of Law Index,” as reported by the Center for Justice and Democracy:
In every single one of [the civil justice] categories, U.S. civil justice was worse (e.g., more biased, harder for victims to access the courts and legal counsel) than in countries in Western Europe and North America as a whole, and other “high income” nations throughout the world. In fact, overall, the U.S. ranks last (7 out of 7) in the region, and last (11 out of 11) among high-income nations. . . .
I always check to see the financial supporters of such reports, and this looks to be a pretty reputable group.
