In recent years, access to justice has deteriorated due to the global recession. In particular, in England and Wales substantial cuts to both civil and criminal legal aid provision were imposed as part of a series of austerity measures. This reduction in state funding has had devastating effects. This article examines whether there is an obligation on clinical legal education to fill the gap where there is inadequate legal service provision. Two clinicians will respectively argue whether law students, particularly through the medium of law clinics, should fill the void.
