A group in the Netherlands called XS2Justice Foundation has been working for years to develop a special business model for third world countries to improve access to justice. Part of that business model includes a tool to finance legal services for the poor -- about 4 billion people worldwide cannot rely on the law for protection, and more than 80 percent of property and people remain unregistered, according to the foundation.
“Non-profits, legal aid systems and pro-bono lawyering help the underprivileged find access to justice. But there will never be enough manpower to help 4 billion people,” said Rob C.T. Van Rooij, founder and chairman of XS2Justice Foundation. “An out-of-the-box, sustainable and scalable solution is needed.”
