The LSC contract…

Timothy Dutton QC (Left) has written a letter to The Legal Services Commission about the LSC contract.

The exchange between Chairman of The Bar Timothy Dutton QC and Richard Collins of The Legal Services Commission is quite extraordinary – and all the letters are well worth reading.

Simon Myerson QC explained his reasons for refusing to sign in a podcast with me the other day and on his blog.

  1. This whole issue is absolutely extraordinary; what on EARTH are the LSC trying to do?? ( besides kill off access to counsel/thecourts/justice/equity?!?!?)
    If anyone tells me that the matter is, broadly speaking, a costs saving exercise, I shall NOT be responsible for my actions……

  3. Charon, thanks for the links, I’ve followed it up. Extraordinary just doesn’t do it justice.

    Minx, it IS broadly speaking a cost cutting exercise. Never underestimate the relentless myopia of the managerial mindset in pursuit of a cost efficiency. Little things like the ones you mention are unquantifiable values, so don’t make it onto the spreadsheets.

    Good to see a pincer movement from the senior and junior branches of the profession at work, though.
