How as a society can we find ways of ensuring the people who are the most vulnerable or have little voice can avail themselves of the protection in law to improve their social, cultural, health and economic outcomes as befits civilised society?

Better Law for a Better World answers this question by looking at innovative practices and developments emerging within law practice and education and shares the skills and techniques that could lead to confidence in the law and its ability to respond. Using recent research from Australia, practice initiatives and information, the book breaks down ways for law students, legal educators and law practitioners (including judicial officers, law administrators, legislators and policy makers) to enhance access to justice and improve outcomes through new approaches to lawyering. The book opens the dialogue around the need for community to have a greater voice, for the law to be more responsive moving away from its current often rigid and hard to navigate approaches. It looks at the role of compassion, democracy, humanity and inclusionary practices to make the law better in meeting the demands of an increasingly complex world.
