LASPO Back in the High Court

On Wednesday 10 June (that’s tomorrow) the High Court will begin hearing a judicial review with far reaching implications for the ongoing implementation of the Government’s legal aid cuts. The Public Law Project has been instructed by the Official Solicitor on behalf of a vulnerable individual, ‘IS’, in a ‘systemic challenge’ to the operation of the Exceptional Case Funding (ECF) scheme, established by the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (LASPOA) 2012.

So if anyone is at a loose end tomorrow, that will be an interesting one.
