A Bit Like Deja Vu

We encounter quite a lot of coincidences at JRS. Sometimes they are more than that and we experience an early indication of a change in the prevailing Legal Aid wind. On other occasions, like today, it is just happenstance. How about this then;

One might expect that on a central element of Contract the LAA (practicing for April) would have a settled interpretation, consistently applied. Today however we have chalk and cheese. In one part of the UK there is rank stupidity and in another common sense. The latter also comes with a degree of human decency the former, not so. One will resolve itself following adult discussion, with the result the LSC want, the other already involves threatened litigation, which could go either way (I’m backing the firm). Guess which approach involves a Contract Manager using her own judgement and which one has gone right the way to Head Office?
