    Abstract

    Collaborative law is a new form of lawyering being used in several jurisdictions overseas as well as in Australia. No empirical studies have been undertaken in Australia to test how well it is working, although a number of questions have been raised about its suitability for Australian practices, particularly within family law. This article is the result of research and analysis of a case study which investigated the use of collaborative law in the Australian Capital Territory. Further investigation is needed regarding collaborative law experiences in other jurisdictions in Australia to guide public policy.
