House of Commons Library publishes research briefing on legal aid for domestic violence victims

The House of Commons Library has published a very useful research briefing on legal aid for victims of domestic abuse.

The briefing sets out the legislation, the policy background and debate on the proposals which led to LASPO 2012, and what has happened since the introduction of the Act. The briefing considers how the domestic violence 'gateway' has operated in practice, whether victims of domestic abuse are receiving legal aid, and lists the evidential requirements.

The briefing can be accessed from this page.
