The Law Council of Australia is currently undertaking The Justice Project. The Council wants to identify systemic flaws and gaps in the system and also highlight what is working well. The Council is seeking both formal submissions as well as informal stories from people affected. The project will also be visiting numerous regional, rural and metro locations around Australia to gather evidence. See https://www.lawcouncil.asn.au/justice-project/get-involved
