A year-long research program is culminating in a strategic plan, aiming to deliver long-term better justice for Australia, ready for release in the new year.  The research began with a conference on miscarriages of justice in the criminal system, and concluded with an examination of delays and road blocks in the civil system. 

The campaign for better justice will aim to involve all aspects of the legal system, from the High Court through magistrates courts, as well as barristers and lawyers of all shapes, sizes and types, particularly including the academic legal community. Politicians will be involved from an early stage as we seek to engage with the Australian community.
