Legal Aid Restrictions for Bar Reports

Last week the Scottish Legal Aid Board (SLAB) announced new restrictions  on legal aid for Bar Reports.  A Bar Reporter is commissioned to investigate a child's circumstances and to report to Child Welfare Hearings. For reports after 18th February 2013 the cost payable to a Bar Reporter instructed  to carry out these reports will be limited to £3000 (excluding  VAT and outlays). The limit will not apply in privately funded cases.
