Proposals marks end of first intake of Accessible Justice collaboration
Four students finishing off their Masters program at the Accessible Justice Project, a partnership between commercial law firm LK and Adelaide Law School, present their ideas for future justice access initiatives.
Mario Pegoli, Cheryl Rosales, Guglielmo Plain and Tayne Redman proposed new ways to meet legal needs in areas as diverse as microboards to support decision making for people with disability, communication partners for witnesses and defendants in court, self-represented litigant engagement with pre action protocols in civil courts, and approaches to triage to support self-represented litigants.
The Accessible Justice Project Masters program not only offers affordable legal representation to people in the community, it also recognises the importance of innovative thinking to create new ways to continue to ensure that the justice system remains relevant and accessible. We are proud that these students are now taking these ideas, and their commitment to justice access, forward into their careers.
