LegalVoice is an online magazine about ‘access to justice’. It is aimed at legal aid law firms, the not-for-profit sector and all organisations providing publicly-funded legal advice in the UK.

It was launched in May 2012 in the midst of the biggest shake-up of legal aid since a system of publicly-funded law was set up as a key part of the welfare state under the Legal Aid and Advice Act 1949.

The idea is for an online magazine that:

• disseminates all the information practitioners need to know about legal aid
• keeps legal aid professionals abreast of the changes in the sector
• delivers insightful commentary and expert analysis; and
• provides a forum for legal aid professional to exchange ideas.

LegalVoice is a not-for-profit venture. Its start-up costs costs have been met by City law firms and other supporters. We are especially grateful to Allen & Overy, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Clifford Chance for their generous support. We have also received considerable logistical support from Allen & Overy and Lexis Nexis.

The site was developed by David Gilmore and Jon Robins with help from Vicky Ling and Matt Howgate. Jon is the editor.

We welcome contributions from all professionals committed to access to justice and anyone interested in the sector. Please contact us on or
