Criminal Legal Aid Review: Accelerated Asks Response

At the beginning of 2019, the Ministry of Justice began a comprehensive review of criminal legal aid fee schemes.

The decision was taken to fast-track certain areas of the review. Namely:

  1. How litigators and advocates are paid for work on usused material.
  2. How advocates are paid for work on paper heavy cases.
  3. How advocates are paid for cracked trials in the Crown Court.
  4. How litigators are paid for work on sending cases to the Crown Court.

25 Bedford Row were invited to give our views on these proposed changes, which can be viewed here.
