Access to Justice

Access to Justice is a core research strength of La Trobe Law School. Our academics approach access of justice issues in a variety of contexts, with a particular focus on alternative dispute resolution, non-adversarial processes and legal ethics. The field includes scholarship relating to legal professional responsibility, clinical legal education, community legal centres and integrated legal systems, mediation and conflict resolution, trial processes in criminal and civil matters, and theoretical conceptions of law and justice.
