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.
