An economist and a lawyer went to lunch… reflections of the Productivity Commission’s Access to Civil Justice Inquiry

The Australian Centre for Justice Innovation (ACJI) and the Australian Institute of Judicial Administration (AIJA) are hosting a lecture on the Productivity Commission Access to Justice Arrangements Inquiry. The report, released in December last year, had made many recommendations regarding dispute resolution and access to justice, including increased use of ADR by the courts.

The lecture will be delivered by Dr Warren Mundy, a Commissioner of the Productivity Commission and the Presiding Commissioner on the Commission’s Access to Civil Justice Inquiry.

In this lecture, Dr Mundy will reflect on the findings and recommendations of the Productivity Commission’s inquiry into Access to Civil Justice. In particular, he will explore the application of economics to the examination of civil justice policy and institutions and discuss future challenges to improving access to civil justice.

This lecture precedes a full day seminar on 26 June 2015, jointly convened by ACJI and AIJA. Further details will be provided at a later date on the AIJA and ACJI websites.

A flyer for the lecture to be held in the Melbourne CBD at 12.30 pm on Friday 13 February 2015 an be downloaded here.
