New book: After the Act

after the act

New book out today co-authored by Research Associate Mavis Maclean.

After the Act describes the aftermath of the recent removal under LASPO of public funding from legal services in family matters other than in cases of child protection and domestic abuse. Through analysis of the policy context, interviews with key players, observation of services provided by lawyers, students, lay support workers, and the advice sector, the authors describe the work being done and the skills being used in a range of settings. The book raises questions not only about access to family justice, but about the role of law in family matters in an increasingly post legal society.
