Student Efforts in Superior Court Receive Arizona Supreme Court Award

On October 21, 2014, the Pima County Superior Court Family Law Bench received the Arizona Supreme Court’s Promoting Access to Justice Award at the Court Leadership Conference luncheon. The court received this award for the Simpla Phi Law project, a collaborative effort involving Arizona Law students, along with UA English students. They worked with the Pima County Superior Court and alumni Dean Christoffel to simplify complex language in instructional packets related to divorce, child custody, and other family law proceedings. The for-credit internship program uses the expertise of both sets of students to make clear, succinct, and accurate revisions to the instructions that accompany family law forms for Pima County Superior Court. The project has resulted in the successful redesign of nearly all of the “Self Service” forms for Family Law cases. Read more about the award here.
