Bar Standards Board statement regarding costs and the QASA Judicial Review

Director of the Bar Standards Board, Dr Vanessa Davies said:

"The Court will consider the question of whether to make a Protective Costs Order in this case. The Claimants, the LSB (as Defendants) and the BSB as an interested party have written to the Court regarding costs. This is a matter for the Court to decide. The BSB has now written twice to Baker and McKenzie who are acting for the Claimants and the CBA, offering to discuss a suitable costs cap: there was no response to this suggestion."
