''... the work held my attention with the ruthlessness that is the prerogative of a very, very good book.' Frontline
Publicly funded legal services and the organisation of civil justice in this country stand on the brink of major change. This thought-provoking book makes a unique contribution to the debate stimulated by government ideas of reforming legal aid and the civil justice system. It combines the Legal Action Group's analysis of the current state of our civil justice system with contributions from an impressive array of commentators around the world, all engaged in their own countries at the cutting edge of change.
