This article discusses the issue of discrimination emerging from the Indigenous Legal Needs Project's (ILNP) research in the Northern Territory (NT). The ILNP research found discrimination to be a pervasive problem in the NT. It is suggested that without having recourse to challenge incidents of discrimination, Indigenous peoples are left vulnerable to responding in ways that leave them in danger of contact with the criminal justice system. Limited access to justice further gives rise to a raft of additional legal and other problems.
