The Society of Asian Lawyers and the Black Solicitors Network judicial review of the LSC proposals has been settled after an adjournment on the basis that the LSC carry out a full retrospective and prospective cumulative Race Equality Impact Assessment. (See the Law Society press release here).
Top work all round. The assessment should have some interesting results, unlikely to be good news for the LSC.
Also, there is an early day motion set up. EDM 1961 calls on the government to postpone the regulations and meet with all stakeholders to find an alternative future for legal aid. Get your MP to sign it.
