PM's comments on lawyers misleading & dangerous

The Bar Council and Law Society of England and Wales issued the following joint statement following the Prime Minister’s comments on 14 June 2022:


“Legal challenges ensure government is acting lawfully, following laws agreed by parliament.


“It is misleading and dangerous for the prime minister to suggest lawyers who bring such legal challenges are doing anything other than their job and upholding the law. Anyone at risk of a life-changing order has a right to challenge its legality with the assistance of a lawyer, who has a duty to advise their client on their rights.


“The Bar Council and Law Society of England and Wales together call on the Prime Minister to stop attacks on legal professionals who are simply doing their jobs.”
