The UK Human Rights Blog points out that BaILII is really the hidden backbone of the justice system and (with a certain prescience) that:
‘In the virtual world, legal blogging isbecoming an established voice in the UK legal community and has provided the public with a lively, accessible and most importantly free new way of engaging with the law. With legal aid becoming scarcer and Citizens Advice Bureaus losing their funding, free information services such can be the last resort for those who seek legal help without having to pay for a lawyer.’
To extend the bony metaphor, BaILII is not only a backbone but operates on a pretty skeletal budget and staff. So go on – donate to BaILII!!
