Problems Oriented Courts Court Intervention Programs Final Report
The Law Reform Commission is pleased to announce the release of its Final Report on Court Intervention Programs.
The Final Report which sets out the Commission's conclusions and final recommendations is intended to be read in conjunction with the Commission's detailed Consultation Paper which describes how various court intervention programs operate and provides additional research and analysis.
The Commission has made a total of 37 recommendations for reform and took as its guiding principles in determining these recommendations the need to increase access to court intervention programs (particularly in regional areas); the need to protect legal rights and ensure fairness; the need for ongoing independent evaluations and the need for adequate resources.
