Primary Justice Project launched to resolve legal disputes affordably, quickly and amicably
The State Courts has launched the Primary Justice Project to resolve legal disputes in a cheaper, faster, and more amicable manner.
As part of the project, it will develop a panel of "Primary Justice Lawyers".
They will provide basic legal services for a fixed fee for up to six hours, and will try to resolve cases through mediation or negotiation, without taking a case to court.
The scheme is seen an alternative to self-representation and costly court proceedings.
It's suitable for civil claims below $60,000 and beyond the jurisdiction of the Small Claims Tribunal, or divorce proceedings that are close to settlement.
