The Association has received positive advice today from Counsel in conference with regard to challenging the MOJs response to the consultation by way of Judicial Review.  A letter before action will be sent by the end of the week.

The action will be taken in the name of the LCCSA and CLSA and the officers of both organisations therefore become personally liable for costs should we lose.   We are therefore asking Firms and individual members to donate to a fighting fund.   We suggest £250 per firm and a suggestion was made today by a member that individuals might like to make a personal contribution of £25 each.  Of course we do not put a limit on your generosity so please pay more if you can.  Please also ask for contributions from any contacts you have outwith criminal firms.

If you prefer, you can pay by transfer (our bank details are NatWest, Sort Code 60-50-01, Acct 01172298 - please quote the reference "Judicial Review"), or you can send cheques to our administrator: Mrs. Sandra Dawson, LCCSA Administrator, PO Box 6314, London, N1 0DL.

It is the rule of law that is being attacked here, which affects all lawyers.   Proceedings will not be issued until we have sufficient funds to defray officers personal risk.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

    I am proud to support you. I am gutted that the majority of my association (CBA) voted ‘No’. Please do not give up.

    We must stand together if we are to have any chance of winning.

    This is such an important matter, not just for lawyers but for the whole population. A country can be judged by the quality of its justice system and we all aware that ours is currently under threat as never before. One of the last chances we have to save it is this JR. I am not a lawyer but i have already given once and will do so again if absolutely necessary. There are only 10 days left.
