Abstract

This reports presents key findings and recommendations of research conducted in 2012-2013 by the Indigenous Legal Needs Project (ILNP) in Victoria.

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, Victoria, Access to Justice.
