Chapter 6. Suggested areas for further research

6.1 This chapter considers suggested areas of further research on the issues discussed in the preceding chapters. While participants and contributors were not specifically requested to provide recommendations or suggestions for issues relating to access to justice which are in need of further research, several submissions and roundtable participants took the opportunities presented in the consultation processes to express views on such issues.

6.2 The suggestions received can be categorised into four main areas:

  • issues relating to particular disadvantaged groups
  • issues relating to accessing particular legal aid services
  • issues relating to court processes, and ADR processes
  • issues relating to the accessibility of law reform processes.
