Joint Advocacy Group statement on QASA

9 May 2014

A JAG spokesperson said:"The claimants today have been granted leave to appeal on all grounds the decision of the Divisional Court in the judicial review of the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates. We welcome the fact that an expedited hearing has been agreed and is likely to be listed for mid-July. We look forward to assisting the Court in due course.

Members of the JAG will consider the implications of today's decision and issue further information shortly."
