Consultation on Advocacy Reminder Deadline 27th November

The Government has issued a Consultation on the future of Advocacy – this is the link to to the Consultation https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/enhancing-the-quality-of-criminal-advocacy 

This is a crucial consultation for Criminal Practitioners to respond to as it could lead to the restriction of advocates doing work in house for their own clients . Non Crime advocates might also consider that this is a first step to restricting the ability to represent own clients and could be expanded by the Government to other areas . So everyone is invited to respond .

Doncaster Law Society would like to make a composite submission and if you want to send us your comments on the consultation questions then we will include them provided we receive them by the 25th November at the latest .
