Excellent community based legal firm UK? Rev. Dane Marks and co-founders launch The Community Law Project UK Ltd to help people facing legal issues get support. Court statistics for England and Wales for the year 2019 have reported 4.2 million cases where 2.0 million from civil courts, 1.5 million from magistrates, 393,000 from tribunals, 266,000 from family courts and 104,000 from crown courts.

These statistics shows that the majority of the cases are civil and family cases and this high volume may tend to unnecessary amounts of outstanding cases, longer waiting times, costs to both the government and the parties who are present at the court. This shows the necessity of an advancement in the current court system with information technology and related solutions.

The co-founders, Rev. Dane Marks, Daniel Onafuwa and Samantha Yarwood and the genius and passionate team of Law Students and Graduates have come together to offer their support for minimal fees to assist people facing legal issues. The team will offer their support in helping compile evidence, draft case notes and find legal representation to support people in the poorest and most marginalised areas. They will also offer low cost support to law firms and barristers to enable them to focus on their cases.

Rev. Dane Marks explains, ‘since studying law and learning the issues of people facing legal problems and the problems the courts are having with the current backlogs, we will help in the best way we can.’

In the initial stage of implementation, The Courts Online will be used for less complicated court cases. Family courts and county courts will be considered on this phase and will identify any further development points before going to the next Implementation stage. According to the plan laid out by The Community Law Project UK Ltd, grant funding, equity crowdfunding, institutional investments and owner funds will fulfil the capital requirement for the platform’s development. Management of the Community Law Project UK Ltd. is willing to register two separate companies for the two platforms for better control and expansion in the future. The Courts Online claims to be a fully integrated, dedicated online court platform allowing the Judiciary to deal with cases online. The venue is a highly secure, interactive, and much needed integrated system that will be licensable to selected members to cut costs and ensure a smooth process of court proceedings.

Partner spotlight: The Miscarriages of Justice Awareness Society aims to serve as a friendly and educational society to all Cardiff University students. This society aims to inform members about how, when, and why miscarriages of justices occur, with a primary focus on the British Legal System. We will provide interactive, educational, and informative meetings, allowing every student the opportunity to delve into the system and uncover its flaws and evaluate the necessary reforms. We believe doing so is of fundamental importance. We endeavour to produce an exceptional, and most importantly an inclusive, society. Miscarriages of Justice do not have a set definition but can include wrongful convictions of the factually innocent, acquitting the factually guilty, and victims not receiving rightful compensation. This area of law is not currently getting the attention it deserves. Furthermore, we believe that current global events highlight the need for this society more than ever. Once you have purchased your membership, please request to join the Private Members Facebook Group, the link can be found on the left-hand side of the screen. Here, you will have the access links to all of our upcoming events.

Community Law Project UK Ltd is a community based legal company that assists people on low incomes in their legal matters. Research indicates that people on low income have been made the most vulnerable and most likely to face problems accessing legal remedies since the passing of the LASPO Act 2012. The further restrictions on legal impinged on the rights of individual access to professional legal assistance. We aim to bridge the gap between people who need access to justice and legal remedies alongside the professionals who can assist them. Find even more information at https://communitylawproject.com/.
