A Fairer Legal Aid?

We have been a little bit tardy bringing to your attention the Governments proposals regarding a ?Fairer Legal Aid?. This is the outcome of FLAR. Lord Falconer’s headline commitment is:
“The Government will take steps to address the disproportionate amount of money spent on defending high-cost criminal cases and redistribute funding so that all criminal cases are dealt with swiftly and fairly and ensure greater flexibility to provide more civil help and advice to those who need it”.
The full set of proposals (and much more) can be found here. There have been cautions welcomes from the representative bodies. If nothing else more change is on the way.
