Everyone is entitled to legal aid in order to exercise their right to a fair trial. Prisoners are unable to exercise these legal rights as they are isolated from support and are confined to cells without sufficient educational and legal resources.
Access to resources that assist in the preparation of defence is therefore imperative for people in prisons. This includes access to computers, through which prisoners can access evidence and legal knowledge. Access to computers also allows for the provision of online legal services to combat the lack of accessible face-to-face legal services.
