Not The Global Law Summit

lady HgraylingDuring 2015 the UK government is celebrating the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta by holding the Global Law Summit to promote the UK as the world centre of law and justice.

The Magna Carta famously declares, “To no one will we sell, to no one will we deny or delay, right or justice”, yet at the same time the government is savagely cutting legal aid, thereby denying and delaying rights and justice for millions of ordinary citizens.

Justice Alliance are highlighting the hypocrisy of the government with a series of events to support the fight for legal aid and access to justice. More info below or click on pictures.

The Government is re-writing historical dates to make political capital out of a celebration of the rule of law. It is trumpeting our justice system while behind the scenes damaging the rule of law and causing irreparable harm to access to justice.
