Justice for all campaign group vows to continue fight against legal aid cuts

Manchester is to have a law centre again after a succession of closures in the past decade ended with the last one shutting down in 2014.

Greater Manchester Law Centre has moved into premises in Moss Side previously occupied by Citizens Advice and will officially launch on 11 February.

The setting up of the centre marks a touchpoint in a journey that started a year ago as a local campaign against the legal aid cuts. The appointment earlier this month of legal aid lawyer Ngaryan Li as a full-time supervising solicitor has allowed it to become a fully-fledged law centre member of the Law Centres Network.
