The purpose of this Article is to give a brief overview of citizen access to justice and legal information in France, both before and after the implementation of the reform. This Article will primarily focus on the work of non-governmental organizations in this field, especially the work of Droits d'Urgence, the NGO of which I am a founder and President. Droits d'Urgence deals primarily with access to legal information for the most marginalized sectors of the population. It is a humanitarian organization of legal professionals involved in the promotion of rights for those suffering from exclusion.
