The charity is operating on a break-even basis with no reserves to invest in updated software and other business critical infrastructure. The project is to cover the costs of consultants to advise LAG on the drafting and implementation of a business plan to secure its future as a sustainable social enterprise.
The first task of the consultants is to evaluate whether the charity is a going concern and to set out the options to sustain its legal information mission.
The business planning process will include-
Suggesting possible sources of new revenue and necessary investment to sustain LAG’s publishing operation,
A review of LAG’s production processes to make recommendations on efficiencies and other savings,
Evaluating and making recommendations on LAG’s digital publishing strategy.

The Access to Justice Foundation
Litigants in Person-Self Representation Network Conference
May 2, 2016
The Foundation has made a range of grants to organisations that support Litigants in Person (LiPs). One task group of the Civil Justice Council is reviewing developments in web-based support for LiPs. As part of this work, the group is looking at practice in other jurisdictions and has identified the Self-Represented Litigation Network, the lead body providing support to LiPs in the US (www.srln.org).
This is to support attendance at the Network conference from 11th-13th May 2016 in Chicago.
