The Reform of Criminal Legal Aid: When more accountability means less justice

Jan Davies, 2000
ISBN 0 907631 89 4
28 pages, 6

Examines the recent reforms and finds that they undermine the independence of the legal profession and could lead to the de facto nationalisation of the criminal law. It puts these moves into the wider context of current criticisms of the professions for their alleged elitism and unaccountability. Such criticisms illustrate a failure to understand the nature of the professions and mistake accountability for bureaucratic box ticking.
