WHERE ARE WE NOW ON CRIMINAL LEGAL AID? – THE 2022 AMENDMENTS WEDNESDAY 28th SEPTEMBER  2022 – 16:00 – 17:00 – Cost – £75 plus VAT (£90)

As you know, Statutory Instrument 2022 No. 848 has now been published and details the amendments to criminal legal aid for determinations made on or after 30th September 2022, i.e. changes to come about 2 DAYS AFTER THIS PRESENTATION.

The document runs to some 34 pages and, like most Statutory Instruments, it is not the easiest of documents to read.

Colin and Paul have spent the better part of a fortnight putting this document under the microscope in order to put together the materials (some 601 pages) and a series of slides – 45 slides with 4 bullet points per slide – setting out the changes

In addition to the slides, Tables have been produced detailing all of the new Litigator Fees and all of the new Advocates Fees – they are very user-friendly and you will be able to see the new Fee at a glance.

During the hour-long presentation Colin will consider the 20 points mentioned below.

The fee for this course is £75 plus VAT but, as a thank you bonus, you can choose, entirely free of charge, the presentation video plus the full notes relating to any of the 30+ courses available on our website here
