The conclusion of the book wraps up by reiterating overarching themes. It observes again that the influential critique of the civil litigation system, while not compelling, rightly emphasizes the costs of litigation. It explains that because the litigation systems sees at once too few cases and too much litigation, it should be rendered both more accommodating to those who lack access and less costly for those who have it. That combination would advance the aspirations of civil justice. The conclusion also notes that improving the civil litigation system, in the ways such as those proposed in this book, is most likely to result from decentralized reform through localized experimentation.
