Those members who have applied to upgrade their current police station identity card for use in courts will start to receive them at their business premises this week.
From today any solicitor from any specialism can apply for an identity card for use at most courts and tribunals in England and Wales. They do not have to join the association to obtain a card. Applications can be made on our website https://www.lccsa.org.uk/ selecting the Members tab on the menu and then ID card – Solicitors.
Accredited police station representatives can still obtain an identity card for use in police station custody suites and this is now also applied for online.
We hope you will share this news with colleagues in your firms who might be able to benefit from the priority access scheme.
