Showcasing access to justice and legal need development

The Research Network connects the justice, community and academic sectors to enable knowledge sharing and encourage collaboration among those working on legal research and evaluation related to access to justice issues.

We do this by holding events throughout the year showcasing exciting international and domestic access to justice and legal need developments. Learn about these developments and meet and connect with colleagues working in this space.
