Legal Aid – Coming Up With Alternative Proposals

The FLBA is pushing for a tracking system for family cases, with track determining whether or not a party is eligible for legal aid (subject to means).

Declaration: I’m on the FLBA committee so I clearly think this is a very sensible set of proposals, which are a far less damaging way to cut costs – which should reduce the risk of throwing the baby out with the bath water. However, should you wish to look elsewhere for objective assessments of this proposed way forward you can find one such here, from Catherine Baksi of the Law Society Gazette. While you are there, take time to subscribe to the various blog and other feeds on the Gazette website if you haven’t already.
