Crime practitioners: have you experienced touting/poaching of clients?

We are aware of growing concerns among crime practitioners about the 'poaching' of, or 'touting' for, clients, defined for the purposes of this survey as the practice of firms intercepting clients who should be seen by the duty solicitor, or who already have a solicitor.

In order to help us to better understand what form this practice takes and where it is most prevalent, please take our survey and circulate the link to your colleagues. the closing date of the survey is 8 July.

Duty scheme boundaries - information wanted

As you know, the Law Society is being consulted on the terms of the Criminal Legal Aid Contract 2017. In our discussions of the draft terms, a question has arisen as to whether there are any anomalies regarding the duty solicitor areas, which members might wish to see addressed before or as part of the implementation of any new contract.

Specifically, we would be interested to hear from you if schemes within a particular geographical area are obsolete due to police station or court closures.

We would also like to hear your views on whether merging local schemes would make them viable in the longer term.
