The Law Society is inviting legal aid solicitors to participate in a series of focus groups to obtain feedback on the impact of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO). The Law Society want feedback from firms, their working lives, clients and the broader justice system. The research will be used as evidence for the LASPO review being conducted by the Ministry of Justice.
We are delighted to be hosting the Newcastle meeting on 22 August 2018 from 4pm. Between 4.00pm and 5.00pm there will be a group discussing family/civil legal aid and between 5.15pm and 6.15pm there will be a group discussing criminal legal aid.
If you would like to attend please contact the Law Society directly at LASPOReviewFocusGroup@LawSociety.org.uk
