Day in the Life

I have had a morning of trying to tie up loose ends on a number of matters. This has been interspersed with the usual mix of questions which routinely fill up our days at the Middlesbrough office.

The bulk of the latter are phone calls many under the “JRS Free Phone Advice” service. We are seeing much more traffic in this department as the opportunity to call the LSC direct, reduces bit by bit. This means that we are being dragged into the arcane recesses of Contract and Guidance more and more, lacerating a bit of a disconnect from general Legal Aid reality. It also means that I am finding myself relearning long lost nuggets of knowledge. For instance I found that I had correctly remembered cost protection rules, on Devolved Powers grants, from years ago.

Once the LSC website “migrates” I anticipate that this will only get worse.
