Legal aid: equality before the law no longer exists in the UK in 2017 and you should be angry about it

Posted on 25th April 2017

Legal aid is financial assistance given by the government to people who need legal representation, but who cannot afford to hire a lawyer themselves. A few examples of the kinds of cases which have traditionally qualified for legal aid include: when someone with dementia is facing eviction and cannot fight the case against their local authority by themselves; when a victim of domestic violence needs to ensure safety for themselves (and in many cases also their children); and when someone has been accused of a crime.
