We fight cases to defend, define or change the law in the following areas:
Brexit – we think Brexit’s a terrible idea. And if the people agree we think they should be able to stop it.
Tax – we all need what our taxes buy. We all have to pay our share.
Workers’ Rights – no one should get rich exploiting the vulnerable. Where Government policy lets workers down, we will step in.
In time we will work in other areas too. On our list are welfare, intergenerational fairness and refugees.
We are democrats. Ours is a political project: we use litigation to drive law change. But we also use litigation to drive demand for law change. We will educate and we will energise.
We use the law to advance a progressive, responsive and forward-looking society.
We use litigation to hold the UK government to account, especially when the Opposition is weak.
Through a rigorous process we select strategic cases that seek to defend, define or change the law.
We act as a focal point for expert commentary, education and engagement around important legal issues.
Nothing difficult is ever achieved by simply being agreeable. So we aren’t.
