In the Media, Legal Aid

Grim verdict delivered over deep cuts to legal aid

PUBLISHED March 12, 2014

The steps of Old Palace Yard opposite the House of Commons resembled an impromptu robing room on Friday as 1,000 barristers and solicitors took to the streets of Westminster to protest over the government’s legal aid cuts.
Courts across the land were quiet for the day as protesters – clutching placards bearing the slogan, “Hands off Legal Aid” – marched in wigs and gowns. They posed for photographers as they carried an effigy of Chris Grayling, the justice secretary, and a black coffin marked, “RIP Legal Aid”.
