Prison Law

Long day out in-house training yesterday so missed the chance to blog about this.
As predicted there are to be changes to the Prison Law class of work which will include;

A portfolio based supervisor standard – with the usual 350-hour casework requirement
A move to standard fees – surprise, surprise
A tighter Sufficient Benefit Test

Will give it a more detailed read when time allows – CCLF webinar to do now!!

  • There is no really much more to it than that- they have removed the New Matter Starts proposal for now and will revisit in Summer 2011, there will be lists of cases that they expect to fund (non-exhaustive) and those that they do not (in the 2010 Contract) to guide us on the sufficient benefit test, and the exceptional cases will be paid at hourly rates- there you are, you can concentrate on watching the cricket this weekend now…

  • Ta – cricket over by tea tomorrow weather permitting

  • One of the things I really like about blog articles is that they trigger a thought in my mind. Once that happens, I feel like I have to comment with the hope it is useful to others. Since there are lots of personal blogs with different points of view, they test your understanding. It’s at these occasions when you have crucial insignt many others might not have had, this includes the blogger herself/himself. I find myself coming back to your site because you have lots of wonderful insights and also you are actually at this a long time, that is very exciting and tells me you know a lot. Keep triggering ideas in others!
