Petition to Save Legal Aid

The government is bringing forward proposals which would effectively destroy what is left of legal aid.  Access to justice will become almost impossible for all but the richest in this country.

These vicious attacks on the people of this country will not be defeated by gentle lobbying alone, and more information on practical steps which lawyers and non-lawyers can take will appear on Haldane's Legal Aid campaign pages (/news/category/legal-aid) over the coming days.

For now, to help build momentum in the campaign against the government's vicious cuts, we are asking members and non-members alike to sign the petition against them available at 38 Degrees.
