Make your voice heard – attend the legal aid means test review focus group in Bristol – 4th March


The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is undertaking a review of both the civil and criminal legal aid means tests. As part of the review the Law Society wants practitioners’ voices to be heard so we have been working with MoJ officials to set up focus groups around the country.

These focus groups are an opportunity for you to speak directly to the government officials undertaking the review, explaining any problems that you and your clients face with the means tests and suggesting improvements.

This is your chance to influence the changes put forward through the review.
The Bristol focus group is taking place on Wednesday 4 March 2020 from 4.30- 6.30pm, Bristol at BLS’s offices at 12 Colston Avenue.

The Law Society,  Head of Justice Richard Miller will be involved in each of the focus groups across the country.

If you would like to attend a focus group, email MeansTestFocusGroup@lawsociety.org.uk, confirming the date and location you would like to attend.
