Consultation - Responses Invited

Yes, it's another consultation about cuts / reforms to legal aid. The consultation 'Family Legal Aid Funding From 2010'opened just before Christmas and is running until March 18. The proposals are significant and will have long term consequences for all areas of the legal profession and clients.

The LSC are running a series of consultation meetings for the legal profession to attend - you need to book a place prior to attending. If you cannot go to the meetings you can respond here. Be warned - the consultation document is 90+ pages and there are many annexes to peruse. But it is important that as many responses as possible are received by the close of the consultation period - so get reading!
