The Ministry of Justice has responded to the protest by UK Uncut this afternoon, saying cuts are necessary as legal aid is simply 'costing too much'.
"We have one of the best legal professions in the world, but cannot close our eyes to the fact that - at around £2 billion - legal aid is costing too much.
The Government's legal aid reforms will create a sustainable legal aid system that will still be one of the most generous in the world. We want to ensure the limited public funds available are targeted at those cases and people who need it most.
– Ministry of Justice
At a time when major financial challenges are being felt by businesses and households across the country, the legal sector cannot be immune from the Government's commitment to getting better value for every penny of taxpayers' money we spend."

Iain Duncan Smith is a serial offender for misusing statistics. He has been wrapped over the knuckles for doing this before and if he needs to cook the books, his arguments must be weak.
The Work and Pensions Secretary was today accused of misrepresenting government statistics in order to claim his cap on benefits was driving people to find work.
The Department for Work and Pensions(DWP) released figures yesterday showing the number of people expected to be hit by the cap had fallen from 56,000 to 40,000. Iain Duncan Smith hailed the figures, saying the cap had provided a "strong incentive" for people to look for jobs.
However, Jonathan Portes, the National Institute of Economic and Social Research and a former chief economist at the DWP, said "there was no evidence at all" that the cap had affected people's behaviour.
Mr Portes told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: "It may be that the benefit cap has indeed had the effect that Iain Duncan Smith would like it to have.
"That is perfectly possible but without doing the analysis - and it has not been done - you simply cannot say that and you shouldn't say it.
"This is, I am afraid, a consistent pattern of trying to draw out of the statistics things which they simply don't show."
Mothers in Haringey will demonstrate today against government benefit cuts, which they say will hit them the hardest.
The benefits cap is being trialed at four London boroughs from Monday, including Croydon, Enfield and Bromley.
