Democratising the law requires people to be legally capable
Many of the assumptions of the enforceability of the justice system rely on the notion that people with legal problems or disputes will act upon those issues to receive the entitlements they are due. Extensive research has shown that many people lack the knowledge, skills and confidence to do this. As a result, the Bingham Centre has worked tirelessly with others to promote the legal education of the public. This briefing paper for the 31st October 2018 meeting of the Centre's All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Rule of Law explored this concept with experts in the field.
