Abstract

The chapter explores some of the tensions in New Labour rhetoric and policy in the area of legal aid. Despite the adoption of a rhetoric of increasing access to justice, policy in this area became incraeasingly dominated by cost containment and a discourse of undeserving litigants, eroding some of the key founding principles of legal aid.
