Survey – Standards of Criminal Advocacy

We have recently commissioned ORC International to conduct a survey seeking the views of the profession as to the frequency with which they encounter underperformance in the criminal courts. The results will provide an important baseline prior to the implementation of the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates.

A sample of criminal advocates will be invited to take part in the survey by completing a quick online questionnaire (which will take no more than 10 minutes to complete). If you receive this invite from the ORC please take the opportunity to register your own experiences and ensure that the results of the survey are robust and reliable. The survey will also include input from consumer and stakeholder representatives.
