In an interesting announcement from the new Justice Secretary he has proposed a new way of providing access to justice for all. Details will no doubt follow.
Wealthy lawyers should do more free work for the justice system. Justice Secretary says the legal profession needs to 'help protect access to justice for all' The new Justice Secretary said lawyers who have "done very well" financially could be compelled to give up their time for free to shore up the less well-funded areas of law. Top-earning barristers and solicitors could even be asked to make financial contributions, Ministry of Justice sources indicated.
