A new online magazine for those working in legal aid and access to justice publishes for the first time today. The arrival of LegalVoice is a hugely welcome development and a much needed extra resource for legal aid lawyers – and it’s entirely free.
Vicky is one of the founders and we will both be writing regularly. Vicky begins a series guiding practitioners through the web of civil contracting, and I write on the future of LSC contracts. Other articles include Carol Storer on the perception of legal aid lawyers, Christina Blacklaws on the Co-op’s move into law, Julie Bishop on the future of Law Centres and Ruth Hayes on innovation at Islington Law Centre, and an interview with Lord Bach.
