By discussing the complexity of CLSP, we understand that to find an exact (optimal) solution to a real (large) sized CLSP is practically an impossible task.
Our work in this paper considers a multi-item, multi-period CLSP with the considerations of backorders and setup-times in its formulation.
The standard formulation of the CLSP, which is available in the literature, is extended to include the variables and the situations which we propose to study, to the model.
Lord Irvine said: ``The CLSP is transforming access to legal services and so making its own distinct contribution to combating social exclusion and poverty.
This way, the CLSP can provide a framework for comprehensive local networks of good quality legal and advice centres, supported by co-ordinated funding, and based on the needs of local people.
