Summary criminal procedure roadshow: Hamilton
28 May 17
Open meeting to discuss the proposed new digital-based model
Venue: University of West of Scotland, Almada Street. Hamilton
Radical plans to reform summary criminal procedure in Scotland by introducing a digital based system will be open to discussion at a series of roadshow events held by Scottish Courts & Tribunals Service.
The proposals are contained in the SCTS paper A New Model for Summary Criminal Court Procedure, published on 28 February and featured in the March Journal.
They set out an ambitious new model to transform summary procedure through modern technology and with a new emphasis on case management.
Open to all those interested in the summary criminal justice system. Refreshments provided.
To help manage numbers, those wishing to attend a roadshow event are asked to let the team know by emailing Evidenceandprocedurereview@scotcourts.gov.uk with their name, details and event they wish to attend.
