Our criminal justice system is at breaking point. Due to years of underinvestment it is facing an avalanche of problems, such as growing shortages of duty solicitors, court closures and barriers to accessing legal aid.
The Law Society has been making the case to Government for increased spending on criminal justice to help fix the system, but they need the help of their members. Members can attend this event to ensure their voice is heard. Law Society staff will lead the session, including the Society's Head of Justice, Richard Miller.
The free event is being held in Newcastle (venue TBC) on Tuesday 25 June 2019, from 3.30pm to 6.00pm. Further information and booking details are here.
