Legal Aid Mythbuster – updated

Legal Aid Mythbuster

We have produced a new and updated Legal Aid Mythbuster to correct common misconceptions and ‘myths’ about legal aid (which are often promoted by the government).

The Mythbuster addresses misleading spin about the cost of legal aid, the pay of legal aid lawyers, judicial review and comparisons between the legal aid system in England and Wales and other countries.

Please download the attachment below and share widely. A references document, setting out the source of the citations in the Mythbuster, is also attached below.
