R (The Public Law Project) v Lord Chancellor [2016] UKSC 39

Sep 29, 2018, 21:19 PM
This appeal concerns the lawfulness of a proposal by the Lord Chancellor (then The Rt Hon Christopher Grayling MP) in September 2013 to introduce a residence test for civil legal aid by amending Schedule 1 to the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (“LASPO”), by means of delegated legislation, in the form of a statutory instrument, which I will refer to as “the draft order”.
