When talking about legal aid and access to justice, it is hard to look beyond funding. Even the Ministry of Justice has acknowledged the problem, to judge by its agreement to pump an extra £135m into the criminal legal aid budget.
Realistically, though, the government is not going to make up the funding shortfall. So, what else can be done?
We recently held a roundtable, sponsored by Clio, to consider how the type of innovation and technology we are seeing in the wider legal market can support law firms and not-for-profit providers to deliver their services.
In this report, we hear from leading figures from across the access to justice world about how innovation and technology has already changed the way they work and where it can take providers in the future. You can download the report or view online and also watch video excerpts from the discussion.
