Access to Justice
Committed to the development of legal practice and access to justice for all.
Lipman Karas supports a number of activities and organisations focused on ensuring access to justice by all members of our community, including:
- The Accessible Justice Project
- South Australian Magistrates Court Legal Advice Service
- Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project
- Aboriginal Law Student Mentoring Project
- Law Society of South Australia’s Aboriginal Law Program
- Prisoners Abroad
In addition to their involvement in these organisations, LK lawyers contribute to the development of legal practice in a number of other ways, including lecturing and coaching mooting teams at our local universities, and participating in industry working groups and committees.
The Accessible Justice Project
The Accessible Justice Project is a collaboration between Lipman Karas and The University of Adelaide to improve access to justice for Australians who would otherwise be without legal assistance. We have created a not-for-profit law firm that offers affordable legal services to those in our community who do not qualify for legal aid but cannot afford a private lawyer. It is staffed by qualified lawyers who are completing their Master of Laws at the University of Adelaide. They are supervised by senior lawyers from Lipman Karas.
Collaboration and innovation are at the heart of this initiative. Please click here to learn more – https://accessiblejustice.org.au/home.
