Abstract

A recent Queensland study looks at the affect of criminal law, and the workings of the criminal justice system, on people living in poverty. Preliminary results imply the need for a wide-scale inquiry, similar to the Henderson Inquiry of 1975, to ensure equality before the law and access to justice for people living in poverty.
