Law reform and public affairs
The Law Council of Australia is calling for greater awareness of the nexus between the health of our justice system and the health and wellbeing of clients, judges and lawyers this Law Week 2019.
"Governments must recognise there is real cost – financial and human – in failing to invest in justice and adequately fund the legal system. Chronically under-resourced courts, under-funding of legal assistance by successive governments and royal commissions with tight deadlines place huge strain on the community, the judiciary and the legal profession," Mr Moses said.
