Responding to the litigant in person challenge: Where to from here?

Additionally, ACJI has an interesting event relating to civil justice which ADR Research Network blog subscribers in Melbourne may be interested in … 
Presented by Dr Bridgette Toy-Cronin and Justice Kevin Bell AM

The Australian Centre for Justice Innovation is delighted to host a public lecture about future directions for policy and practice regarding self-represented litigants.

The rise of self-represented litigants has been recognised as a phenomenon across the common law world. The last decade has seen increasing attention given to the issue by policy makers, researchers, lawyers and the judiciary. This discussion will consider the evidence base and responses developed to date and ask, “where should we go from here”? This question will be considered in terms of future directions for research, policy, and practice, with particular reference to Justice Bell’s decision in Matsoukatidou v Yarra Ranges Council [2017] VSC 61.

Date: Tuesday 19 September 2017
Time: 5:30-7pm
Venue: Monash Law Chambers,
555 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

Registrations for this event will open in August.
