I have spoken a few times before about how important I know Legal Aid is to people. I have no intention, at the moment, to retread that ground.

I have spoken also, about the cuts made to tLegal Aid and how much more difficult it will make Access to Justice for those mos tin need of it.

That’s why today, I’m very proud that the Law Society of Scotland has launched its #DefendLegalAid campaign.

I hope that Lawyers form all across Scotland, and politicians from all parties, can get behind this campaign, work to fix the Legal Aid System in Scotland, and ensure that we protect Access to Justice for those in the country who need it most.
