Policy work

PLP regularly submits responses to consultations and government policy proposals which fall within areas relevant to our core objective of monitoring and increasing the accessibility of public law remedies. Particular focuses within this area are judicial review procedure, ADR, and government legal aid policy. PLP’s policy and research work are closely entwined, with research often undertaken to develop policy reform proposals, and policy initiatives stimulating new areas of research.

Due to the number of documents produced by PLP in response to recent and proposed changes to legal aid policy and judicial review (civil) proceudre we now have seperate sections for current and previous policy work.  In current policy work, you will will find all recent work (2012 and on), including policy briefings, consultation responses and ongoing FOIA request to the MOJ.

PLP has transformed the way we engage with public sector organisations. After years of powerlessness in the face of appalling decisions made without thought as to their impact, we can now fight back.
