Abstract

This report addresses two broad research questions. This first is an analysis of the civil and family law needs of Aboriginal people in New South Wales (NSW). The second arises out of this legal needs analysis and explores how Legal Aid NSW might improve the services that they provide to Aboriginal clients in the areas of civil and family law. The research aims to benefit Indigenous communities by improving access and equity through the provision of more effective and culturally sensitive services when dealing with civil and family law needs.

Keywords: Civil and Family Law, Aboriginal, Indigenous, Australia, New South Wales, Access to Justice, Equity
