Access to justice left in “shocking state” by cuts to legal aid

About this video

Access to justice for individuals and families is in a “shocking state” because of Government cuts to legal aid provision, according to University of Liverpool research.

Dr James Organ, Dr Jennifer Sigafoos and a team of researchers from the University’s School of Law and Social Justice, interviewed 115 people with issues related to employment, welfare rights and family law, but who were unable to access legal aid because of cuts introduced under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act (LASPO) in 2012.

Here they explain what they found, and what should be done.
