Whatever your view, the government has now announced that it will be undertaking a Post-Implementation Review (PIR). The rationale behind the PIR is that there have been significant changes in the justice system since the implementation of LASPO: changes in the way courts and tribunals operate; changes in the ways people access legal advice; and changes as a result of the rapid technological advancements we have seen over the past seven years.
The government describes the aims of the review as being to assess the impact of LASPO generally, and with reference to the future of legal support in the justice system. In this regard, the government says that it is keen to hear from interested parties who wish to contribute to the review process.
Findings are due to be published later this year.
