Solicitors give QASA the cold shoulder

PUBLISHED February 10, 2014

Only one in 200 of criminal solicitors who have signalled their intention to practise advocacy in the future have signed up to the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates, the Gazette has learned.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority said that more than 10,000 solicitors notified last year of their intention to practise advocacy, but that since formal registration opened in October only 50 solicitors have signed up.
