The Law Society have organised a series of free roadshows around the country, exploring issues such as the growing shortages of duty solicitors, court closures and barriers to accessing legal aid.
The Law Society has been making the case to Government for increased spending on criminal justice to help fix the system, but they need the help of their members. Members can attend this event to ensure their voice is heard. Law Society staff will lead the session, including their Head of Justice, Richard Miller.
- inform members about the Law Society’s criminal justice campaign and how they can participate
- provide an opportunity for discussion of the MoJ’s review of criminal legal aid and the approach the Law Society should take to discussions
- enable the Law Society to update members on what is happening in the HMCTS reform programme that impacts on criminal lawyers
