Technology could widen law centre catchment areas, says Justice minister

Debate in Westminster Hall last week on: Ministry of Justice: Legal Aid Spending

Closing for the government, Justice Minister Alex Chalk said –

‘… law does not stand still, just as the rest of the world does not stand still. There are other mechanisms by which legal advice and assistance can be delivered using technology, and we must be alive to that.

In some of the excellent conversations that I have had with law centres, they have started to recognise that maybe their catchment area of need is not simply the area around, say, North Kensington for North Kensington ​Law Centre or the area around Hammersmith for the Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre…’
