ATLEU's Response to the MOJ’s Consultation ‘Transforming legal aid: delivering a more credible and efficient system’

On 9 April 2013 the Ministry of Justice issued a consultation paper entitled 'Transforming Legal Aid'. The paper announced a further round of cuts to legal aid, just a week after the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO) came into force on 1 April 2013, which significantly reduced the scope of legal aid. 

ATLEU responded to the MoJ's consultation, which closed on 4 June 2013. Read ATLEU's response to the consultation here.
