High quality legal assistance in UK 2021
UK online court platform proposal and recommended community law services? Rev. Dane Marks and co-founders launch The Community Law Project UK Ltd to help people facing legal issues get support. Court statistics for England and Wales for the year 2019 have reported 4.2 million cases where 2.0 million from civil courts, 1.5 million from magistrates, 393,000 from tribunals, 266,000 from family courts and 104,000 from crown courts.
These statistics shows that the majority of the cases are civil and family cases and this high volume may tend to unnecessary amounts of outstanding cases, longer waiting times, costs to both the government and the parties who are present at the court. This shows the necessity of an advancement in the current court system with information technology and related solutions.
The co-founders, Rev. Dane Marks, Daniel Onafuwa and Samantha Yarwood and the genius and passionate team of Law Students and Graduates have come together to offer their support for minimal fees to assist people facing legal issues. The team will offer their support in helping compile evidence, draft case notes and find legal representation to support people in the poorest and most marginalised areas. They will also offer low cost support to law firms and barristers to enable them to focus on their cases.
Rev. Dane Marks explains, ‘since studying law and learning the issues of people facing legal problems and the problems the courts are having with the current backlogs, we will help in the best way we can.’
If we observe the number of cases even before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were towering 39.300 cases in the Crown Court. After we faced the social distancing needs in 2019, the backlog of cases elevated at least 36 per cent, and the reports showed 53,318 points. Also, the COVID-19 spread across Scotland has resulted in the Lord President’s announcement that during the lockdown time, all the criminal courts will prioritize the most serious trials to keep things going smoothly. The decision expresses that most summary trials in the Sheriff Court and Justice of the Peace Court will be adjourned to decrease the number of overall trials to 75%.

Partner spotlight: NWAMI hosts a variety of events which provide opportunities for people from all over the world to showcase their talents and provide a taste of their own culture. In the past this has involved taking groups to parliament to discuss issues of integration and welfare. The groups were formed largely of international students from Bangor University, who were passionate about supporting welfare and experience of all international students. This can be through the medium of music, dance, poetry or writing. Some events we take part in include celebrations of DIWALI, Black History month, Inter-cultural events all over the country along.

The issues have been excruciatingly increased due to the global pandemic, which has severely impacted the most vulnerable even more so. The negative ramifications have affected the legal industry, particularly law firms. This has in turn impacted the futures of many young legal professionals seeking work. Many internships have been cancelled or postponed, leaving many in the field out of work, particularly recent graduates. Many law firms on top of the legal aid cuts and the results of the pandemic, do not have the capacity or resources to take on the ever-growing number of cases that these low-income people want to bring forth. We sought a solution to solve all these issues at once. Discover even more information at here.
