The Introduction outlines the challenges that are being posed by public service modernisation agendas. There have been major impacts on the welfare state and democratic values in general. And there have been particularly significant impacts on people's access to justice in disadvantaged communities, more specifically. The history of changes to the provision of legal aid, from the post war period until the present, illustrates these challenges and the dilemmas that they pose for public service professionals such as those working in community Law Centres. The Introduction concludes by outlining the content of the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   public service modernisation, welfare state, access to justice
