Mark Neary’s Tribunal: Unequal access to justice

Read Mark’s blog on trying to self-advocate in a housing battle on behalf of Mark and his disabled son, with no Legal Aid (since cuts), and so no legal representative, up against a powerful local authority’s barrister. Appalling. Shows vividly the power imbalance created by lack of funding for Legal Aid in social welfare disputes. The disempowered are further disempowered by a judicial process to which they do not have equal access.
