Legal Aid

Further to this post about the Glasgow Bar Association voting for industrial action Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill announced at the Law Society of Scotland conference in Edinburgh last Friday that there is to be an increase in the level of civil legal aid payments and a new scale of payments for complex family law cases.
