The dismantling of legal aid
Criminal Solicitor - The price of everything and the value of nothing
The [Justice Gap] - Appalling Vistas where Francis FitzGibbon QC looks at government policy on legal aid
David Allen Green in The New Statesman - How the Ministry of Justice's proposal for the tendering of criminal legal aid is misconceived and illiberal.
I never thought that I would see the day when a democratically elected British government was seeking to do this. Please do not think this will affect only others. Anyone of us could, one day, require a good lawyer to represent us.
Please sign this petition and get on to your MP.
The consultation paper is at Gov.uk - Ministry of Justice
