Overview

It's no secret that the legal system is riddled with problems—from courts that don't provide access to the citizenry to lawyers who protect their legal cartel while price-gouging consumers. Clearly something needs to be done.

* taking divorce out of court
* writing laws in plain English
* letting non-lawyers provide legal services
* abolishing probate
* making court rooms user-friendly
* letting non-lawyers be judges
* removing lawyers from house sales

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
Nolo should send complimentary copies of the book to all state and federal legislators...many of the specific proposals could relieve the burden of crowded courts and make law more accessible.
Wilson Library Bulletin
[Nolo] books are impeccably knowledgeable, realistic and helpful...In [Fed Up With the Legal System] the editors have pulled together a collection of simple suggestions for changes that would make our legal system work for the layperson.
