Expert Legal Advice Online

The number of law centres and free legal advice agencies has more than halved in the past decade, while demands for their services have increased in the wake of recent cuts to legal aid. A Ministry of Justice report released yesterday showed that the not-for-profit legal advice sector had contracted by 55 per cent in the past 10 years. More and more people are turning to the internet for help, and searching for expert legal advice online. Despite this, the number of solicitors offering legal advice online has not significantly increased.
