New Carter Forum

The Legal Aid Practitioners Group has today launched a discussion forum
on its website for practitioners to share their concerns about Lord
Carter’s reforms. It is available to anyone to contribute, not just LAPG
members. It can be accessed here
Director Richard Miller said, “It is vitally important that the
profession reads the Carter report and consultation paper and that
people share their hopes, fears and ideas about the proposals. This
forum gives people the chance to discuss the proposals with other
practitioners, and to influence the response of the profession’s
representative bodies.”
He continued, “The more information we have from firms about the way the
reforms will affect their businesses and their clients, the better we
can represent their interests in our response to the consultation and in
the ongoing discussions we will be having with the LSC and DCA in the
coming months.”
LAPG is an independent grass roots movement, representing around 600
firms at the heart of the provision of publicly funded legal services.
