Press coverage

A few weeks ago, the EBA announced that it could no longer recommend to members that they be appointed by the court to represent accused people in summary criminal cases where there was no legal aid or private funding in place. This decision was taken as the rates payable to solicitors appointed in such cases has remained static since 1992.

We are pleased to be receiving support in the press and would recommend the article below as a good overview of the crisis facing legal aid today.
