The human impact of cutting Legal Aid – request for examples


A TV producer is looking for cases that could illustrate a programme investigating the human impact of the UK Government's decision to cut its Legal Aid budget.


They are focusing on civil law and would like to find cases that show the dilemmas facing individuals who were eligible for Legal Aid prior to April 2013 but whose legal complaint is now out of scope. These are important issues and the producer wishes to encourage a public debate.


If, in the absence of legal aid, you have not been able to obtain help to pursue your claim and have decided to represent yourself in court – or you know someone in this position -  please send an e mail to If the producer is interested he will contact you. This initial conversation would be private. 


Please respond as quickly as possible.
