Family Law special issue

Rosemary Hunter, Professor of Law at the University of Kent

This paper will consider the theoretically available options for providing access to justice following the substantial withdrawal of public funding for legal representation.  These options include alternative avenues of dispute resolution, the provision of pro bono and low cost legal services, educating litigants to represent themselves, and the modification of the adversarial system to facilitate self-representation.  The paper will briefly evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each of these options in the context of private family law disputes.
