Law Society president Christina Blacklaws introduces Justice week 2018

Until a crisis strikes, most of us think we will never need a lawyer, or legal advice. Access to justice is about enforcing and defending your rights, and holding others to account when they do you wrong. Get involved with access to justice and help us solve the challenges facing our justice system today. Book an event for #justiceweek18 Monday 29 October to Friday 2 November. Brought to you by us, the Bar Council and CILEx https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/policy-campaigns/justice-week/ ⚖️ What does access to justice mean? • keeping a roof over your head • fighting an unfair dismissal from work • getting the care and support package your local authority should be providing • holding people and organisations to account when they discriminate against you • ensuring access to your children after a divorce • clearing your name of a crime you did not commit
