Advising in Austerity : Reflections on Challenging Times for Advice Agencies (Paperback) - image 1 of 1

About this item

Law scholars and others from the UK provide 10 chapters and three case studies based on the “New Sites of Legal Consciousness” Research Programme conducted at the Universities of Bristol and Strathclyde, UK, from 2012 to 2015, which aimed to understand advice agencies in the UK and their relationship to the law, in the context of the period of austerity and focusing on employment advice and the Citizens Advice Bureaux. They discuss the experience of advice and its effects on advisors and clients, challenges facing advisors and their teams, the changing technological and social dynamics of advice services, the growing role of employment law in the advice sector, and how funding patterns and relationships are changing. They examine how advice work can empower clients, ways in which stories are transformed into practical information, how employment advice relates to the contemporary condition of “precarity,” problems faced by employment clients in terms of access to justice blocked by procedural reforms, changes in the Employment Tribunal context for clients from all backgrounds to access justice, and citizenship as a key concept for the understanding of injustices and struggles.
