The Cost of Seeking Civil Justice in Canada
This report investigates the financial, temporal, and psychological costs of seeking civil justice in Canada. The author looks at the methodology used in a 2013 Canadian study on the experience of self-represented litigants, and draws quantitative information from that study and other research in the area.
The report suggested that further analysis of private costs can improve access to justice in two ways: it can help public sector policy-makers to reduce these costs, and it can help lawyers and entrepreneurs find new ways to reduce the costs of providing legal services.
It should be noted that a later version of this article was published in the Canadian Bar Review in 2016.
