Access to Justice Promoting access to law & the legal system as a human right
Access to justice is a fundamental Human Right. It includes knowledge of and access to the legal system and to whatever legal services people need to achieve a just outcome. It encompasses access to fair redress systems and also includes rthe state's obligation to vindicate and protect human rights.
FLAC's focus is on how the law excludes marginalised and disadvantaged people. We propose fair solutions to protect everyone equally.
Our work in offering basic legal information and advice to the public means that we act as a bridge for those who cannot afford to access law, given the desperately underfunded and stretched state services providing assistance.
