Access to justice background paper ( 2003 ) Cite this report
The generalist studies focus on assessments of needs in the general population. There is also an abundance of qualitative research on the access to justice needs of particular socially and economically disadvantaged people. While some of this research is contained in dedicated 'access to justice' studies, the majority appears as parts of larger studies on specific groups of disadvantaged people or specific forms of disadvantage. The Australian Law Reform Commission has produced a number of reports which to varying degrees canvass access to justice issues. Notable amongst these are the reports on women, children and multiculturalism.
