The criminal justice system in England & Wales is under siege.
Many have written about this – so I do not need to repeat the litany of examples in this podcast review post.
NorthPodLaw describe the contents:
The subjects up for discussion include the BPTC aptitude test and the conflicting interests between the providers pockets and the quality of the candidates; potential strike action; how to get the CBA out of London and engaging with wider Bar; and why the Bar and Solicitors need to be a unified fighting force but not a unified profession.
By the way – To vote, you must be a CBA member and you will need to visit www.criminalbar.com with your membership number to hand.
I see that John Cooper QC, who I have had the pleasure of meeting and podcasting with, has taken up blogging with the wonderfully titled “Shadow of The Noose” blog – and you can read his manifesto for the Vice Chair position at the CBA there
