Cost of a day in court - New analysis by the Law Society

The Law Society has carried out new analysis of the HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) Annual Report and Statement of Accounts 2016-17, which reveals that an average day of court time costs £2,692.

This research follows campaigning by the Law Society for the restoration of legal aid for early advice, which can help resolve problems sooner for those affected, and save some legal issues from escalating into costly court cases.
