LAWYERS seeking clarification of Labour's 'Access to justice' policy document are meeting the party's legal affairs spokesman Paul Boateng MP to air their views.
The Young Labour Lawyers (YLL) meet Boateng this week to discuss how Labour's policy paper, recently approved by the party's National Executive Committee, will affect vocational legal training.
YLL chair Mark Henderson, a barrister at Geoffrey Robertson QC's Doughty Street Chambers, says: "They've accepted that the present system is in a mess and something needs to be done. We want to influence development of policy in education and training with the next Labour Government."
A YLL written response to Labour's consultation paper focused on training issues. The group also wants more detail on Labour's proposed Community Legal Service and how it will restructure the legal aid system.
