LAG mission

Legal Action Group (LAG) is a national charity committed to improving access to justice, particularly for the vulnerable and socially excluded. LAG works with lawyers and advisers to improve standards and knowledge of social welfare, family and criminal law among practitioners, by publishing legal handbooks and its monthly magazine, Legal Action, and providing training for lawyers and advisers. We also comment and campaign extensively on the delivery of publicly funded legal services, the administration of justice and social welfare, family and criminal law issues. LAG does not represent any particular interest group: our primary concern is with quality and access to justice for the users and potential users of legal services.

LAG promotes equal access to justice as a fundamental democratic right. Justice demands both fairness of process and fairness of result. We seek to remove barriers to fair and effective justice, particularly for those who have difficulty enforcing their rights or defending their interests. To this end, we work to improve law and practice, administration of justice and legal services.
