Access to Justice in Italy

Vincenzo Varano / Alessandra De Luca
Published Online: 2007-04-10 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1934-2640.1224

This article examines the present situation of access to justice in Italy, trying to highlight the most important trends concerning lawyer fees and legal aid, as well as the structure of civil procedure, including the operation of the justices of the peace and ADR developments. What becomes immediately apparent is a deep crisis which is centered on delay, whereas the costs of justice are substantially lower in Italy than in most other European countries.

Keywords: civil justice; costs; justice of the peace; ADR; legal aid; Italy
