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.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
