‘There is evidence that LASPO (the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012) has limited access to redress for breaches of human rights and for discrimination claims.’

This is from a November 2018 briefing from the Equality and Human Rights Commission on the impact of changes to civil legal aid under LASPO.

The briefing assesses the impact of the 2012 changes in relation to access to justice, the effects on people with protected characteristics, access to redress for human rights breaches, and access to redress for discrimination.
