The Hart Publishing journal Judicial Review has published a special issue concerning the government’s legal aid proposals. The special issue contains a joint opinion written by Michael Fordham, Ben Jaffey and Ravi Mehta on the legality of the proposed residence test for civil legal aid, together with the consultation responses of several groups, including the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, the Public Law Project, the Constitutional and Administrative Law Bar Association and the Bar European Group, the Bar Council and the circuit judges. The whole of this issue of the journal is (at least for now) available online free of charge.
