Negligence and Compensation

The Scottish Legal Complaints Commission has appointed Professor Frank Stephens and Dr Angela Melville of Manchester University School of Law to undertake research into the Law Society of Scotland's client negligence and compensation schemes, known as Master Policy and Guarantee Fund.

The researchers are particularly interested in people’s experiences of bringing a negligence claim against a solicitor or advocate or making a claim against the Guarantee Fund, as well as views on the operation of the policies more generally. There are more details here and here.

Members of the public are invited to contribute their views and can contact Dr Angela Melville on 0161 275 3580, or email for more information. The independent report is due at the end of June 2009.

Thanks again to Peter Cherbi of A Diary of Injustice in Scotland for the tip off.
