My first column for Legal Voice

I am delighted to have been asked to write a regular column for Legal Voice, an online magazine about access to justice issues, aimed at legal aid law firms, the not-for-profit sector and all organisations providing publicly-funded legal advice in the UK. My first article is about how Hackney Community Law Centre went from five twitter followers to making social media a key part of our survival. You can read it HERE.
