Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue of Laws will generate discussion and debate about both access to justice, and administration of the justice system. Most of the papers will be drawn from a one day Symposium to be held in Canberra on 20 November 2015, jointly by the University of Canberra and the Australian National University, although other relevant submissions will be considered. The issue will address four sub-themes, each a dimension of justice in society: violence, process, oppression and hope. Papers on justice and violence will examine examples of legal reform and policy planning designed to ameliorate violence. For justice and process, papers will explore the intersections of social justice and law reform bodies and civil law processes. Justice and oppression will feature papers on human rights violations, such as violence against women and issues that affect people with disabilities. For the fourth sub-theme, justice and hope, papers will evaluate programs in legal services and prisons that are intended to improve access to justice and rehabilitation.
