Will they fund the specialist lawyers and digital forensics experts?

There is little point in having a wonderful new building if there is no new funding for the specialist lawyers and digital forensics experts. Legal aid is in a crisis as lawyers and experts withdraw from publicly-funded work because the pay is a fraction of what can easily be earnt in private, civil, work. That means the new court will mostly host trials of very rich defendants.
