In reponse to the effect of COVID-19 on the legal profession, the LIV has written to the Commonwealth and Victorian Attorney-General about the need for support in the legal and justice sector.

The letters discuss the need for more funding for court and community legal centres, impacts to RRR (Rural, Regional and Remote) areas and difficulties surrounding the electronic witnessing of signatures.
