The Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (“LASPO”) removed non-asylum immigration cases from within the scope of legal aid funding. This has had a severe impact on many of BID's clients who have had difficulty securing their status and challenging Home Office decisions to detain and deport. We assessed the wide-ranging impact of the cuts in our submission to the government's 'Post-Implementation Review' of LASPO.
