For those interested in the broader debate on ABS, in which the issue of access to justice is figuring quite prominently, I would draw to your attention (I don’t think I have seen it explicitly referred to on this list yet) that the LSUC ABS Working Group has released a summary of the submissions it received in relation to its Discussion Paper on ABS. The summary is available here: <http://www.lsuc.on.ca/uploadedFiles/ABS-full-report.pdf> All of the submissions are available via links on this page: http://www.lsuc.on.ca/abs/
Attached is the first fact sheet coming out of the Cost of Justice project at the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice.
This fact sheet proceeds the release of three research papers that analyze the preliminary data from our national “Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice in Canada” survey. We expect to release these papers over the course of the next 2 months.
