The Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 has introduced significant changes to criminal procedure.
From police station interviews to powers of arrest, it is absolutely essential that solicitors working in criminal law are fully aware of the new requirements imposed by this Act. However, there are other matters going beyond the content of the Act that ought to be considered:
- How has it actually worked in practice?
- What unexpected difficulties have arisen?
- How have the legal aid implications and the need to have an available solicitor on call affected practice management?
The answers to these questions – and more – can be found at the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act seminar.
