The Lord Justice Clerk has asked the Society to advise members to revisit the High Court of Justiciary Practice Note no 3 of 2005

Following renewed focus on obtaining the evidence of vulnerable witnesses, the Lord Justice Clerk has asked the Society to advise members to revisit the High Court of Justiciary Practice Note no 3 of 2005 (Taking of evidence of a vulnerable witness by a commissioner). The Society is planning to develop a series of CPD workshops for solicitor advocates on the specific issue of vulnerable witnesses. Further information will be shared with members once the programme has been set up.
