Legal aid in crisis : Assessing the impact of reform Paperback / softback
This book is the first to evaluate the recent reforms of UK legal aid from a social policy perspective and assess their impact on family law courts and advocacy.
It focuses on the rise in people representing their own legal case and argues that the reforms effectively `delawyerise' disputes, producing a more inquisitorial justice system and impacting the litigants, court system, staff and process.
Arguing for a more holistic concept of the reforms, the book will be of relevance to students, academics, policy-makers, judges, campaigners and social workers, in England and Wales, and other other jurisdictions instituting cuts to their legal aid budgets.
