Legal Walk – 3rd June – All urged to attend


It is with regret that due to unforeseen organisational arrangements that the Legal Walk on Monday will be postponed to September.

 

The South West Legal Walk is taking place on Monday 3rd June leaving from Bristol Law Society’s premises at The Law Library on Small Street at 5pm.

As well as being in aid of charity, this year local solicitors and members of the Bar are urging members to come along to demonstrate the solidarity of the profession and its objections locally to the criminal Legal Aid proposals put forward by the Ministry of Justice.

The PCT consultation paper is open until 4th June and all BLS members are asked to register their objections to the proposals by responding to the Consultation, writing to their local MP and also signing the e-petition referred to elsewhere in BLS news.

The proposals are said to be plans to reduce access to justice by depriving citizens of legal aid or the right to representation by the Solicitor of their choice.
