Justice in a Time of Austerity is a project about peoples’ experiences of the civil justice system after the 2013 legal aid cuts. It combines academic and journalistic research to better understand the experiences of people as they move through the justice system of England and Wales and is a collaboration between Jon Robins of the Justice Gap and Dr Daniel Newman of Cardiff University supported by the City law firm Ashurst.
The research looks at whether the restrictions following the 2013 cuts affects the fairness of the justice system by asking how the people who use the justice system are impacted by legal aid cuts?
