10 December 2018 – Legal aid advice network ‘decimated by funding cuts’

/ 0 Comments

Nicola Mackintosh QC (Hon) is featured in today’s BBC article on the deserts of legal aid provision.

Nicola is quoted as saying “Pre-LASPO, we had a network of advice centres, CABs, law centres and specialist high-street practices. It was not perfect, but it was pretty good. Now we have a complete decimation of the advice and representation network. Everybody recognises disabled people have rights but if you do not provide the advice and representation to them, those rights are theoretical in practice.”

27 November 2018 – Nicola Mackintosh QC (Hon) – Honorary Bencher of Middle Temple Inn

/ 0 Comments

We are delighted that the Middle Temple Inn has called Nicola Mackintosh QC (Hon) as an Honorary Bencher. Nicola is the first female QC (Hon) to be called and it is a great privilege.

She was called at a ceremony on 27 November 2018 at Middle Temple Hall. In her speech Nicola restated her commitment to the rule of law and its application to vulnerable and disabled people in particular, including the vital importance of civil legal aid.

She will work with the Inn in the coming years to inspire students and others to continue to press for a just and inclusive legal system which affords equal access to the law for all.
