In our response to a government consultation on criminal advocacy, the Law Society said it was strongly opposed to a suggestion that instructing an in-house advocate represents a conflict of interest.
We emphasised that solicitors have an obligation to act in the best interests of their clients, which means advising on a range of issues, including advocacy options.
Resolution, the family lawyers' group, has launched a survey to gauge users' experience of the client and cost management system (CCMS), following some recent changes by the LAA. The survey is open to legal aid practitioners in all civil contract categories and is available to complete online until 21 December.
In these difficult times for practitioners, the 2016 conference provides practical advice on business survival and how to establish a business approach to legal aid work. It will also consider innovation, new revenue streams, alternative funding and the role of technology in access to justice. The conference features a dynamic speed-consultancy session where you will be able to speak directly to experts on issues that concern you.
