Abstract

The findings of a research study into the civil and family law needs of Indigenous people in New South Wales (NSW) are presented and analysed. It is suggested that the identification of the wide range of civil and family law needs of Indigenous people in NSW could serve to eliminate the inequality in access to justice for the Indigenous communities in Australia.

Keywords: Indigenous People, Civil and Family Law
