'The quarterly legal aid statistics are a welcome contribution to a more transparent approach to the workings of legal aid. However, they also demonstrate the full impact of the cuts to civil legal aid, which is having a profound impact on the lives of many vulnerable people across
England & Wales. We warned the Ministry of Justice that the cuts would mean that thousands of families would be denied access to justice and our prediction, sadly for those affected, has come true.
The latest quarterly figures show that families facing serious issues, such as disputes concerning children, are effectively being shut out of the justice system. The human consequences of cutting a huge part of family law out of legal aid are clearly being seen.'
"A large and important book that should be on the shelf of every family lawyer." Sir James Munby
