Access to Justice & Law Reform Institute

The Access to Justice & Law Reform Institute makes recommendations for the modernization, improvement and reform of law and acts as a center of coordination, research, education and action on access to justice. As an access to justice hub we engage and coordinate work with justice stakeholders, students, the public and frontline service providers to promote and build capacity on access to justice and law reform.
