Barristers strike outside Oxford Crown Court over legal aid cuts
10:12am Monday 6th January 2014 in News
AROUND 12 barristers are outside Oxford Crown Court this morning in St Aldate's protesting against the proposed cuts to legal aid.
They are joining legal professionals across the country as part of a campaign against the Governent's proposed cuts.
The protests are planned until 2pm. Some courts are still going ahead in Oxford and it will be up to individual judges to decide whether to adjourn cases.
