The Legal Aid Agency has postponed the compulsory use of the client cost and management system (CCMS) until 1 February 2016.
The Law Society had been very concerned about the state of the CCMS and made strong representations to the LAA on behalf of members. Head of legal aid, Richard Miller, said:
‘We are pleased that the LAA has listened and acted on our concerns. If the promised enhancements work as we have been told, they should address many of the problems members have been experiencing.
'We will monitor progress very carefully to check whether the changes deliver the expected benefits before the new date for mandatory use.’
Revised guidance on exceptional case funding for civil non-inquest cases has now been published. It takes into account the Court of Appeal decision in the case of Gudanaviciene and others versus the Director of Legal Aid Casework and the Lord Chancellor.
