JusticeNet’s Self-Representation Service to Close

In September 2013, JusticeNet SA commenced a pilot Self-Representation Service in the Supreme Court of South Australia. The Service was funded by a seed grant from the Law Foundation of South Australia. Following a successful first year and a positive evaluation, JusticeNet secured additional funding to expand the Service into the District Court and open 4 days per week. The Service was re-named the State Courts Self-Representation Service.
