Abstract

Spending on criminal legal aid per head of population is much higher in England and Wales and in Scotland than in the Netherlands. A pilot comparative study was undertaken to examine some of the possible explanations underlying different levels of legal aid spending in these 3 jurisdictions. Various forms of information on legal aid and criminal justice systems in the 3 countries were analysed to consider the extent and nature of the apparent differences in expenditure. The research was undertaken by Mr Cyrus Tata and Professor Alan Paterson from the University of Strathclyde and Tamara Goriely of TPR Social and Legal Research.
