Special Edition on Cost of Justice of the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice Newsletter
The latest issue is devoted to the Cost of Justice in Canada:
"Over any given three-year period, almost 50% of Canadians over the age of 18 will experience at least one civil or family justice problem. Other than knowing that people cannot afford the legal system, we know very little about the specific costs of justice in Canada, particularly about affordable justice services and our collective well-being."
"In this special edition of the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice (CFCJ) newsletter, we provide an overview of several recent research publications from the CFCJ’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funded 'Cost of Justice' project which, we anticipate, will contribute significantly to the conversation around the costs of justice in Canada, not just in dollars, time and opportunity costs, but also to the state and to the livelihood of the people accessing our justice system."
