(p.1) 1 Introduction
No Day in Court

Sarah Staszak

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the concept of judicial retrenchment, or efforts to constrict access to the courts in the decades following the Civil Rights era. While most narratives of backlash center on conservatives in Congress and on the Supreme Court, there is another element to this story. Access to courts has been eroded by more hidden, procedural changes that profoundly impact access to justice in the United States.
