Access to Justice Review

Posted on 11 Jan 2016

The Victorian Government's  Access to Justice Review is exploring how to reduce the barriers to dispute resolution, and improve access to legal assistance services - especially for disadvantaged and vulnerable Victorians.

The review is looking at ways to:

  • divert people from unnecessary and costly court action
  • ensure appropriate alternative dispute resolution is available
  • increase the community’s understanding of how to get help with everyday legal issues.

It is also exploring how to get the most from funding for legal aid providers and community legal centres, boost access to free legal help and better support people who want to navigate the system themselves.
