As state spending on legal services has come under pressure, so too has state commitment to equal access to justice. This volume brings together experts from around the world to look at what happens when the notion that justice should be available to everyone, regardless of means, is challenged. Explores the impact that increasing pressure on state spending onlegal services, and lower universal welfare provision have on the concept of "justice for all". Draws together original research from leading contributors to debates about access to justice from Australia, the United States and Europe. Covers unrepresented litigants, public defenders, self-help legal services, state- and market-based alternatives to legal aid, and the adaptation of common law court procedures to aboriginal culture, among other topics. Emphasises the tensions between efficiency, equality and justice. Published in association with the prestigious Journal of Law & Society.
