Legal Aid: Proposals For Change

If you are interested in Legal Aid and access to justice you should be aware of the work of the Legal Aid Committee. This Committee has been formed to look at the policies relating to Legal Aid in both civil and criminal matters.

New proposals for change have just been issued and your views are sought. See the following link http://www.gov.im/ConsultationDetail.gov?id=419 for a summary and details of the change.

Use your voice and let the Legal Aid Committee know your views. In England and Wales many people who previously had access to legal aid no longer have it. Whilst there are no similar proposals being made by the Committee at present, if you think legal aid should be protected as a valuable tool for securing access to justice make your views known now!
