Young Legal Aid Lawyers (YLAL) is a group of lawyers who are committed to practising in those areas of law, both criminal and civil, that have traditionally been publicly funded. YLAL members include students, paralegals, trainee solicitors, pupil barristers and qualified junior lawyers and we are based throughout England and Wales. We believe that providing good quality publicly funded legal help to those who could not otherwise afford it is essential to upholding the rule of law.
