Abstract

This report presents key findings and recommendations based upon research conducted in 2011 by the Indigenous Legal Needs Project (ILNP) in the Northern Territory, Australia.The ILNP aims broadly and on a national level to: identify and analyze the legal needs of Indigenous communities in non-criminal areas of law (including discrimination, housing and tenancy, child protection, employment, credit and debt, wills and estates, and consumer-related matters); and provide an understanding of how legal service delivery might work more effectively to address identified civil and family law needs of Indigenous communities.

Keywords: indigenous Australians, family and civil law needs, legal service delivery
