New legal aid rules threaten to decimate access to justice for survivors – please help and complete this 5-minute survey
Young Legal Aid Lawyers (YLAL) is campaigning to stop the new legal aid rules that threaten access to justice for slavery survivors. Under the new rules, many legal aid immigration representatives will not be able to afford to take on complex trafficking cases, meaning our client group will struggle even more to get representation.
You can find out more information about the impact of the rules to trafficking victims here and by watching this short clip.
YLAL needs input from case workers to highlight access to justice issues for survivors. Please complete this short survey.
All answers will be anonymised. The survey will close at 6PM Wednesday 17 June 2020.
