Queensland Law Society

Access to Justice Scorecard

Queensland Law Society’s annual Access to Justice Scorecard asks members of the legal profession to identify existing barriers and propose ideas on how to improve access to justice for Queenslanders, by contributing to the Access to Justice Scorecard. The Scorecard assesses the workings of our legal system through the lens of the profession, including the fairness of our laws, dispute resolution and Queenslanders’ access to legal help. Each year a broad range of respondents provide input including those from private practice, influential non-profits, government and the tertiary education sector.

Last year’s survey results informed the Society on issues around funding for the legal assistance sector, the operation of the family law system, legal services in rural and remote Queensland and the use of technology by courts, and enabled the Society’s advocacy efforts to lead meaningful change. The 2016 Scorecard report can be viewed here.

During the July period you are encouraged to complete Access to Justice Scorecard for 2017. The survey will take three to five minutes to complete and should be completed by 5pm AEST 31 July 2017

The work has already made an impact; please ensure it continues.
