After 10 years, Carol Storer is stepping down as Director of the Legal Aid Practitioners Group on 20 November 2018. Under Carol’s excellent directorship LAPG has made a huge contribution as a representative body, despite the difficult economic climate. With skill, energy and dedication Carol has helped LAPG to support legal aid practitioners so that in turn members of the public are able to enforce their rights, thereby ensuring they have access to justice.

The management committee gives sincere thanks to Carol for all she has done.

Thanks also go to LAPG’s Operations Director Chris Minnoch who has agreed to stand in as Acting Director pending the appointment of a new Director.

LAPG will continue to campaign and support everyone providing access to justice in the years to come.
