S1, Ep 1. Access to justice is open to all.. like the Ritz hotel

In this weeks episode I interview Mr Cyrus Larizadeh QC. We discussed how our justice system has become unaffordable to many and how the destruction of our legal aid system particularly in the area of family law has left people vulnerable to exploitation and left the very people that need it most unrepresented.

We also discuss the ways people are trying to access justice by using charities and law-centres to get free representation (known as pro-bono in the legal world). Also, how the increasing number of direct-access barristers are offering a different route to representation.
