Our Research Network’s first international speaker explores the cost and value of access to justice

December 3rd 2020

Access to justice is described as the most pressing justice issue of our time, and unmet legal need is a challenge the world over. Our recent Research Network webinar explored the cost and value of this goal, and how that should shape 'access to justice 2.0' in future.

We were delighted to welcome our Research Network’s first international speaker, Professor Trevor Farrow – a leading Canadian (and international) expert on the administration of civil justice.

Professor Farrow’s recent book ‘The Justice Crisis’ explores several key topical issues, and what is and isn’t working. In the context of the growing international access to justice crisis, Professor Farrow discussed recent research on the cost and value of access to justice, which he argued is important for moving forward with an ‘access to justice 2.0’ agenda.
