National Legal Aid Launch: The Benefits of Providing Access to Justice
National Legal Aid commissioned PwC to estimate the economic benefit delivered by Legal Aid services that are funded by the Australian Government. This report - The Benefits of Providing Access to Justice - estimates that Legal Aid services deliver approximately $601 million in benefit each year which corresponds to a Benefit Cost Ratio of 2.25. The estimated benefits include avoided costs to the justice system, avoided costs to individuals and avoided costs to government. The report is a critical contribution for engagement with key stakeholders regarding the benefits of investing in legal aid and legal assistance services.
Come along to the formal launch of the Report and hear from PwC about the methodology. This session should be of interest for anyone involved with the Legal Assistance sector.
This is a hybrid event - we have limited availability for in person attendance at Legal Aid NSW in Sydney. The online component will commence at 4pm.
