Just back from a appeal hearing which resulted in our client being reinstated to a Duty Solicitor scheme.
The best bit was that the Committee declined to accept the advice of the LSC supplied “clerk” on the scope of their jurisdiction. We both can and will make a decision they said. I have long been uneasy about the role of an LSC employee providing such advice – it is really refreshing for a panel to be so robust in their rejection of a clearly partial interpretation of contract rules.
