University of Western, Faculty of Law will study the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on family law cases and family law litigants (both those with and without lawyers), including its effects on access to justice, victims of domestic violence, and children whose parents have separated. The team will study family law developments and impacts, and the responsiveness of family justice professionals and courts over the different phases of the pandemic. The objective of this initiative is to use empirical data to understand the effects of the pandemic on access to justice in the family law sector, which may also provide a benefit for future planning.
