Blogs and Groups

Subscribing to blogs (as well as getting involved with YLAL!) can be a fantastic way to keep up-to-date with what's happening in the legal world, the legal aid world, interesting cases and recent developments. 

You can also join practitioner groups. Some require you to be working in a certain area, but others will let you join as a student or interested person.

If you know of any other blogs or helpful groups, then feel free to tell us, so we can spread the word!
