I reminded my readers not so long back that you can still get legal aid for mediation in family law cases. Legal aid in family law has been cut to the bone.
The government took a big axe to civil legal aid in April this year so you might think they would at least provide some publicity for those areas of legal aid still left, battered and bruised though they may be. Well, I’m sure the Ministry of Justice is doing a grand job. So grand it has completely passed me by (and I am the sort of person looking out for these crumbs of comfort from the caring sharing coalition government.
Fortunate then that I came across the truly grand poster prepared by the Legal Aid Practitioners Group (LAPG). My interest is in legal aid in family law and the poster covers that. But fair do’s to the CPAG for listing every last circumstance in which civil legal aid might still be available. Good on yer.
