We find Legal Aid Lawyers fighting back against the procurement process last used by the LAA to reduce fees and access to public funding. " years ago Lawyers had no opportunity to do this when the government axed legal aid for clinical negligence. That loss was enacted by statute and with an inability to challenge the supremacy of parliament citizens lost out on what had been a vital tool to seek justice for victims of clinical neglect.

We need the Government now to reconsider their approach to public funding. It is doubtful most citizens will realize what has be lost, until they need it. Will it then be too late for the "access to justice" tide to turn?
