Interviews needed – why litigants self-represent in Queensland Child Protection Courts

Legal practitioners in Brisbane, Ipswich, and Toowoomba are sought for telephone or face-to-face interviews for research on why litigants self-represent in Queensland child protection courts. The research aims to:

  • examine reasons why litigants self-represent in Queensland child protection courts
  • investigate effects of limited access to funding, and
  • identify impediments that self-represented litigants may face in obtaining timely and affordable justice.
