Forget transparency and bring back legal aid: My week on the Marilyn Stowe Blog
My scribblings this week on Marilyn Stowe’s Family Law & Divorce Blog include:
What exactly is ‘transparency’, and do we need it anyway? - In which I suggest that transparency is a beauty pageant that the family justice system shouldn't be in, and can't win anyway.
Important cases: Charman v Charman - A quick look at the case that involved the largest ever award in a contested application for financial remedies following divorce in this country.
Use a professional – so long as you don’t need legal aid - Commenting on the Law Society's latest ad campaign.
The continuing effect of the legal aid cuts - I unapologetically continue to bang on about the cuts that created an underclass of people who do not have proper access to justice.
Have a good weekend.
