Lawyers protest outside parliament at legal aid cuts



Barristers and solicitors as they hold a demonstration outside parliament.




Former Tory MP Sir Ivan Lawrence QC is ashamed of government for 'destroying criminal justice system'

Were it not for the legal aid system, I would have been unable to bring my case to the courts and the organisation would have got away with it. The lawyers may make money from the legal aid funds, but that is good value for people who would otherwise have no redress in the courts. The barristers and solicitors, certainly have my full support.
