The Lord Chancellor has confirmed that we shall conduct an evidence-based review of Part 1 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, assessing the changes to legal aid provision against their original objectives.

As part of the review process, we have been engaging with a number of Government departments to fully ascertain the impact of LASPO. This includes the Home Office, the Department for Education, the Department for Work and Pensions and the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. This is currently ongoing and will continue following the publication of the review, as we look towards the future of legal support.
