‘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.
