Legal Aid Team to the rescue

3 superhero lawyers are taking on the ‘evil’ justice minister in this new animation exploring the impact cuts to legal aid have had on access to justice in Britain.

Meet the Legal Aid Team – 3 superhero lawyers representing ordinary people and taking on the evil justice minister Chris Grayling and his plans for the future of legal services in the UK. In the run up to the 2015 General Election, this new animation explains why legal aid is so important and what might happen in future if further cuts to the legal aid budget mean that fewer people are able to access legal aid funded professional legal representation.

The Legal Aid Team! animation was funded by a number of law firms and organisations representing lawyers, including the Criminal Bar Association and the Criminal Law Solicitors’ Association. To find out more about legal aid, the cuts and how they might affect you or people you know, visit the official Legal Aid Team! website.
