Now that the government has decided not to proceed with the tender process for criminal legal aid contracts, what does this decision mean for you and what will happen next? Law Society president Jonathan Smithers and head of legal aid Richard Miller will be providing an update on the effects of this decision and what the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) intends to do now. This free event will also be a chance to ask questions and to tell us what you would like us to argue for in the new arrangements.
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, enabling you to speak directly to experts on issues that concern you.
The shadow lord chancellor Charles Falconer has written to the National Audit Office, asking it to investigate the Ministry of Justice's (MoJ) introduction of the legal aid dual-contracting policy and the LAA's handling of the legal aid procurement process.
A new version of the Criminal Bills Assessment Manual (CBAM) has been published by the LAA, reflecting, among other things, changes to prison-law scope and changes introduced following the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. The new version supersedes previous versions and should be used from 1 February 2016. This version follows consultation and extensive discussions with the Law Society and other representative bodies, including the Criminal Appeal Lawyers Association, during which a number of changes were made to the draft, as a result of our representations.
