Several high profile law associations have criticised plans by the Ministry of Justice to close down local courts and tribunals centres in the capital.
Both the Law Society and the Magistrates Association say their closures will mean the capital's residents will have their "access to justice" limited.
Local solicitor Dirghayu Patel, who deals with many housing and homelessness cases in the Lambeth area says the closure of his local court, Lambeth County Court, will mean clients will struggle to get to court.
The President of the Law Society, Jonathan Smithers, says the presence of local courts is vital: "We need local courts so you can access local justice.
"If you can't get there, you won't have access to justice".
