A duty lawyer scheme has been operating in the Land and Environment Court since April 2018.
The scheme is the result of a collaboration between the EPLA, the EDO, NSW Law Society Young Lawyers Environment and Planning Committee, Macquarie University Law School and practitioners from the Court Users Group.
The scheme is aimed at assisting self-represented litigants who are respondents in Classes 4 (except judicial review), 5, 6 and 7 of the Court's jurisdiction. As a result of the success of the scheme, it has been expanded to run permanently and has been broadened to other classes or types of proceedings in the Court.
Every Friday between 9am and 12 noon a duty lawyer will be available by telephone to provide preliminary advice to self-represented litigants with a view to guiding them through the Court process and referring them to appropriate services.
