No win no fee is the system that replaced legal aid. It means that if you claim compensation and do not win your case, you do not have to pay any legal fees.

It is popular with the middle classes and commuters, partly because of its excellent transport links with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling, and also because of the quality of its schooling. It expanded rapidly during the 1990’s.
