The DSBA welcomes the publication of the Judicial Planning Working Group report and the announcement by the Minister for Justice of a significant increase in judicial resources.
DSBA was invited to make submissions to the Working Group and we are pleased that our submissions were considered.
A properly resourced court system is essential for the administration of justice. DSBA is hopeful that the commitment of increased resources will result in reduced waiting time for trials and increased efficiencies right across the court system.
Separately, the DSBA has also made submissions to the Access to Justice Working Group regarding the review of the Civil Legal Aid Scheme. We very much hope that the existing scheme will benefit from a considerable increase in resources so that those who need access to justice most, can obtain that access easily and quickly.
