May be? We closed the doors long ago. In 1792 Joel Barlow charged the Europeans that for states "to hinder [any man] from bringing [a lawsuit] that is just, is a crime of the state against him."
Times have changed. I've a student who is writing on civil legal aid in Belarus! That's the only European country not subject to the Council of Europe's requirement of civil legal aid. Here? Again last year, the Supreme Court said there's no right to civil legal aid.
