About Lillian Wood

Lillian Wood began working at the National Center for State Courts in the Court Consulting Division located in Denver, Colorado starting in 2019.  She entered NCSC with a passion for improving equal access to justice and a varied career of advocating for and assisting low-wealth people. After college (University of Pennsylvania), Lillian worked as a housing, foreclosure, and credit counselor for a community development credit union in post-Katrina New Orleans, an experience that shone a spotlight on the need to improve legal systems for ordinary people. This propelled her to law school (University of California, Berkeley School of Law) where she strengthened her advocacy skills and gained a greater knowledge of the impediments to access to justice.

At NCSC, Lillian assists various access-related projects with legal research and writing, grant reporting and management, data collection and analysis, and communication with project partners. She also provides administrative assistance to the Court Consulting Services department.

Lillian was born and raised in Colorado and is an enthusiastic hiker, backpacker, snowboarder, and skier. After her time away in Pennsylvania, Louisiana and California, she is delighted to be back.
