The moment people fail to access justice is so often the moment that their lives take a turn for the worse, and cuts to legal aid over the decades have dramatically increased the instances of this happening.

In this episode, Jess Miles speaks with Jon Robins and Daniel Newman, authors of Justice in a Time of Austerity: Stories From a System in Crisis, about the decimation of legal aid, the failings of our justice system, and how this has entrenched poverty and social inequality in our society.




You can find out more about these issues from the Justice Alliance and The Justice Gap.
