Lawyer Emilio Irias explained the importance of being able to provide legal advice and support to UNE members: ‘Until now we have only been able to provide legal support in an ad hoc, inconsistent way. Having a legal office will mean we are able to provide a systematic, continuous legal service so that cases can be followed up, people can be properly represented, and that we will be able to provide legal training for members and come up with ways of addressing common problems.’
