Closing the justice gap for the missing middle


The President of the Law Council of Australia, Dr Jacoba Brasch SC issued a media release today stating "A position paper released today by the Law Council of Australia seeks to ensure all Australians have effective access to justice".

“When it comes to access to justice in this country, we have a ‘missing middle’. This is the group of individuals who do not meet eligibility criteria for publicly funded legal services yet lack the resources to afford a private lawyer’s assistance for all or part of their legal matter.”
