The MoJ has published the final impact assessment reports relating to the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Act. With regard to the Jackson reforms, despite the conclusion the policies will be reviewed "between three to five years after implementation", the date for review has been set as April 2016 – three years after the reforms are due to be implemented. However, we suggest this date is read as the earliest possible date for review, as opposed to a definite date.
