This report presents key findings and recommendations from research conducted in 2011-2014 by the Indigenous Legal Needs Project (ILNP) in Queensland, 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.
