LAG history

Legal Action Group was formed in 1972 out of a desire to encourage a more active approach to the delivery of legal services and the role of non-lawyers. A major concern was the inadequate access to advice for private inner city tenants.

In November 1971, four prominent solicitors called a meeting which was attended by about 80 advisers, lawyers and academics. The aim was to raise money for an information service and to monitor the delivery of legal services around the country. This led to the launch of the Legal Action Group, founded with a grant from the Nuffield Foundation.

In November 2012 LAG celebrated its 40th anniversary.
