The purpose of the Legal Action Group, a national, independent charity, is to promote equal access to justice for all members of society who are socially, economically or otherwise disadvantaged. To this end, it seeks to improve law and practice, the administration of justice and legal services.
The legal rights of residential tenants are the focus of LAG’s interest in housing law. LAG offers particular expertise on homelessness and allocations, housing disrepair, and the law on housing and support for asylum-seekers. We also help to develop and support ideas of simplifying this complex area of law, and promote suggestions for improving tenants’ access to justice.
2012 is the 40th anniversary of the founding of LAG. Throughout this year, we will be producing publications and holding events to celebrate this milestone, and to promote our thinking on access to justice and legal services.
