Overcoming non-financial barriers to justice – Academy of Law debate – 27 Nov Sydney

This is the third and final event in the Academy’s Access to Justice series for 2018, being held on Tuesday 27 November 5pm-6.30pm in Sydney. 

Whereas the second one focussed on overcoming financial barriers, this debate will be on overcoming non-financial barriers.

Those barriers are various and numerous: difficulties associated with language, culture, age, geographical location, disabilities whether physical or intellectual, and others.

We have a chair and panel chosen for their interest and expertise in various areas of non-financial disadvantage that people experience in accessing our system of justice.

Panel members and chair

A general idea of their areas of particular interest can be gathered from the panel below.

Ms Charlotte Steer, Lawyer, Seniors Rights Service NSW and Teaching Fellow, UNSW Faculty of Law – Age Barriers

Mr Jim Simpson, Senior Advocate, Council for Intellectual Disability, formerly Principal Solicitor, Intellectual Disability Rights Service – Physical and Intellectual Disability Barriers

Ms Jenny Lovric, Solicitor, Manager Community Engagement, Just Reinvest NSW – Regional, Rural and other Geographical Location Barriers
