The tireless Charon QC has today done two lawcasts of direct interest to family lawyers.
First up was Steve Hynes, director of the Legal Action Group, whose purpose is to promote equal access to justice for all members of society who are socially, economically or otherwise disadvantaged. Steve spoke primarily about the future of legal aid, with particular reference to family law matters. Essential listening if you are a legal aid practitioner.
The second lawcast was with Paul Marsh, President of The Law Society, and covered a range of topics including how the Society is helping solicitors during the recession, his views on the future of legal and his thoughts on the future of the profession generally. Essential listening no matter what you practise.
