Abstract: The report from the Law and Justice Foundation of New South Wales investigates the availability of solicitors in regional, rural and remote New South Wales. It provides a follow-up to their 2010 research report, Recruitment and retention of lawyers in regional, rural and remote New South Wales. Among its key findings the research revealed that, while the actual number of solictors operating in rural and remote NSW increased between 2000 and 2011, communities experienced different levels of access to legal services. In addition, remote and very remote communities tended to have high turn-over rates of solicitors and greater proportions of young and inexperienced solicitors compared to urban areas.
