Cooke & Hutchinson Lawyers are concerned about the proposal to close Court houses around Queensland. We do not know how many court houses might be closed. We congratulate Dr John de Groot and the Queensland Law Society for working with senior stakeholders and agitating in the media about this issue. If the courthouses close down it will mean extended travel time and costs for clients and create a major access to justice issue. In our view any move that makes it difficult for people to participate in the justice system is a backward step that should be avoided.
