Indigenous Legal Needs Project

The Indigenous Legal Needs Project represents the first comprehensive analysis of Indigenous civil and family law needs undertaken in Australia.

The project aims to identify and analyse the legal needs of Indigenous communities in non-criminal legal areas such as discrimination, consumer matters, credit and debt, child protection, education, employment, health, housing and wills and estates. The research is directed towards identifying priority areas of legal need and is intended to inform successful models of legal service delivery. Improved responses will deliver better access to justice, enhanced compliance with human rights norms and improved social justice outcomes for Indigenous people.
