As you know legal assistance is not a privilege – it is the right of all Australians.
A truly just society has a legal system that can serve those who cannot afford to pay for legal representation, through to those that have no voice.
In summary our plan is to:
- Restore and increase legal assistance funding;
- Fully reinstate federal funding for EDO’s;
- Fund a Family Law assistance package
- Cut court costs and
- Do a national survey of legal needs.
