More competition means greater access to justice in the UK

August 31, 2010 Many have said that access to justice in the UK is under threat with new cuts to legal aid funding, The arrival of ‘Tesco Law’ and difficulties securing indemnity insurance. This article from the Guardian suggests that some of the changes may in fact increase access to justice.

The article suggests that access to justice may flourish with the increased competition in the sector. After all, many high street firms have failed to communicate clearly with clients, and continue to charge high fees for routine work. They have largely failed to make good use of new tools and technologies, which could allow them to deliver better service with greater efficiency.

The advent of a more competitive marketplace for legal services may in fact give consumers greater access than ever before.
