Balancing the scales of justice
Why does Lady Justice have a set of scales?
The scales of justice symbolize the idea of the fair application of the law, with no influence of bias or privilege.
But is the legal system actually fair?
What can help to ensure the scales of justice are more equally balanced?
At NYLAG, we provide free civil legal services to ensure the scales of justice are more equally balanced for children, adults, and families experiencing poverty. We know that the assistance of a legal representative can make justice possible.
