Access to Justice – Beyond the Policies of Austerity

Heppenstalls’ Consultant, Andrew Caplen, has recently contributed to a book published by Hart Publishing (part of Bloomsbury Publishing – the UK publisher of the Harry Potter novels) entitled “Access to Justice – Beyond the Policies and Politics of Austerity”.  Andrew wrote the initial section “Access to Justice: The View from the Law Society”.

The book was launched at an event in Bloomsbury on 10th March, with Baroness Helena Kennedy giving a speech on the importance of justice for all.

Andrew has had a number of articles and comment pieces published over the course of the last 18 months, in particular as the joint author of “Speaking Up – Defending and Delivering Access to Justice today” (Theos, March 2015).
