The Ministry of Justice published their review into legal aid for victims of trafficking and modern slavery in December. In it, they accept that victims do not have effective access to justice and 'the likely demand for legal help… is not being met'.
If you have been granted the 10 additional matter starts that the Legal Aid Agency have allowed for in response to this review, then this training will help you to understand how to make a claim for your client.
