Coronavirus Guidance from the Law Society
We see that the Law Society of Scotland have produced a raft of guidance for practice in the currenct circumstances. Some of it seems quite helpful.
PRICE TRANSPARENCY - NEW "GUIDANCE"
Some members are concerned as to the practical significance of the new guidance which has been issued by the Law Society aka the Regulatory Committee. We therefore attach below a pdf of the guidance in question and propose to incude our own counter guidance in the March Gazette. Any member who would care to offer any query, observation or other intelligence is invited to put it into the mix by sendng it by email to me at [email protected] (the usual email address of [email protected] etc being out of commission a least for the time being).
TCPD Goes National with a Free Trial Podcast - 2019-2020
First of all, we have to welcome into the profession and to membership of SLAS, the 2019 cohort of new colleagues. With 27 members, this was the largest group that has taken the programme although not all members were doing the whole programme this year. As can be seen from the photographs, this at least looks like a superb new cohort of future colleagues and, from our training programme, we have every confidence that they will take the profession successfully into a future which has, by courtesy of Esther Robertson and others such as the Competition and Markets Authority, suddenly begun to look ominously interesting.
