    I want to do a dissertation about what impact the recent legal aid cuts will have on the law and on society.
    However, my lecturer says that there's not enough law involved in the topic. I have a little over a week to prove to him that I can find law to write about.

    Do you guys have any suggestions?
    So far, I think I can write about human rights, and how everyone is entitled to a lawyer etc etc. But this is all I can think of so far.
    Help pleasee?

    If you widen this out to include all issues of funding legal action, I don't think he is right.

    Virtually every change has been the subject of judicial review proceedings.

    This very recent case (not a legal aid case) is startling

    However, you would have to do it without textbooks.

    I think the starting point would be these two searches on the Law Society Gazette website and then chase down the references to all the litigation.
