Self-represented Ligitants and the Attorney-General Update

On 1 May 2017, the Australian law Librarians' Association (Western Australian Divison) wrote to the Attorney-General to highlight the issue of self-represented litigants' access to legal information following the closure of the Law Library at the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

ALLA (WA) members and the media were provided with a copy of the memo.

Recent contact with the Department of the Attorney General has confirmed that as of 16 May 2017 the matter has been assigned to a research team within the Department. There is no indication of a date for further actions.
