Legal Aid reforms due to be brought in April could undermine the rule of law.
The reforms to the Legal Aid system, has nothing to do with justice or with government savings.
The "reforms" are purely designed to prevent ordinary people having recourse to law. The removal of legal aid from areas of law, particularly for cases of clinical negligence ensures that only the rich will have access to justice.
A cynical and grotesque move by a wretched government primarily determined to prevent claims against negligent HHS Trusts and incompetent medical staff ever being brought before the courts.
