THERE is much more to be done to improve the experience of attending court, says Chief Justice Anthony Gates.

He made this statement during the launch of the Fiji Access to Justice Project at the Holiday Inn Suva last week.

Justice Gates said the launch of the project would begin a systematic analysis of the existing state affairs.

"I thank the European Union for their significant leadership in the region and for the generous funding of the Access to Justice Project. I thank the UNDP for their professionalism in guiding us along the way, so far it has been a valued partnership," Justice Gates said. He also said from the collection of the results they expected to plan on how they could improve services as the public perceives its greatest need.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Access to Justice Project, which is funded by the EU and implemented by the UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji, is slated to run from 2016-2020.

The project will support access to justice for impoverished and vulnerable groups through empowering people to access legal rights and services through the relevant key justice institutions, in conjunction with strengthening those key justice institutions to undertake improved service delivery.
