Borkowski.do to run legal aid campaign for Criminal Bar Association
An organisation representing barristers has brought in Mark Borkowski to help it take its fight against legal aid cuts into the mainstream media.
The Criminal Bar Association is to launch a comms campaign supported by Borkowski.do, as it seeks to fight fundamental changes in the courts.
Borkowski.do will lead lobbying and media campaigning against wide-scale changes, which include a reduction in the availability of legal aid.
Borkowski said the work was aimed at helping the association ‘preserve the highest quality of advocacy and legal representation’ by bringing the debate out of ‘the legal ghetto and into the public arena’.
He added: ‘This is a complex engagement where the Government is not engaging debate, so a big aspect of this brief is to extend the message outside the usual legal pages and into mainstream news-paper and broadcast media.’
The changes have been overseen by the Government amid austerity measures to cut the £2.2bn legal aid bill by removing it from many aspects of family law.
Borkowski will report to the Criminal Bar Association’s new chairman Michael Turner QC.
