An Introduction to Legal Aid: an interactive session with Matthew Howgate of DG Legal in Reception Room B, Sheffield Town Hall Friday 2nd March 2018 2.00-4.00pm and again at 5.00 – 7.00pm. Matt is a non-practising solicitor and a consultant with DG Legal.

This training is aimed at Councillors and caseworkers and members of staff in MPs' offices that deal with casework on behalf of their constituents. The training has been developed a result of work and conversations that have been had with a number of Councillors and MPs and their staff across the country on behalf of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Legal Aid. The aim of training is to ensure that that Councillors and MPs are aware of the availability of Legal Aid for the issues that their constituents may approach them about.
