Trinity Criminal Team Response to Legal Aid Cuts
The Criminal Silks and barristers at Trinity Chambers have held several urgent meetings to discuss the next steps and strategy in response to the 8.75% cut to the Litigators’ Graduated Fee Scheme (LGFS).
The team robustly support the solicitors’ opposition to the cuts which came into force on 1st July. In this respect, as members of the Criminal Bar Association, the Criminal team are taking part in the ballot which closes on 14th July, following which the team's position will be finalised. In the meantime, the team are supporting the opposition through lobbying MPs and the local Judiciary.
