Deakin Law School - Access to Justice during COVID: the rural and regional experience
The pandemic has no doubt had an impact on everyone, however it has had a significant impact on those living in rural and regional towns. Access to justice is an issue for many members of our community with barriers such the tyranny of distance, lack of public transport and a lack of awareness of services that may be able to assist. With the restrictions due to the pandemic this has further compounded these access to justice issues.
