EHRC report on access to civil law justice

Equality, human rights and access to civil law justice: A literature review was published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in October 2015.

This report examines the impact on equality and human rights of recent changes affecting access to civil law justice. It explores how recent changes – including reductions to the scope of civil legal aid, the Exceptional Cases Funding scheme, reforms to judicial review and the introduction of employment tribunal fees – have affected access to civil justice in England and Wales.
