Legal aid supervision – All you need to know

Print This Post

12 August 2014


The Legal Aid Agency has made a legal aid supervision course mandatory for new supervisors and for those who have not supervised recently. This brand new course will satisfy the supervision requirements in the Legal Aid Agency Standard Crime, Civil & Family Contracts.

Get it wrong and you risk your contract being terminated, a breach of SRA regulations and being reported by your COLP – with increasingly lower legal rates and fixed fees and you cannot afford to get this wrong.

This full-day comprehensive course will cover the new supervisor requirements introduced by the LAA, along with tips on how to reduce the risk of your firm losing its legal aid. If you are a new or existing SQM or Lexcel supervisor, family, crime or social welfare supervisor, then this is an essential course for you.

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
