Thank you very much for your continued support for the AWS.
You may have seen in the legal press that the Government is about to pilot ‘Late Night Courts’. This is not particularly new but could see the beginning of a more extensive role out. The Law Society Gazette item is at :https://www.lawgazette.co.uk/law/-lawyers-concerned-as-moj-revives-plan%20for-extended-court-sittings/5060414.article
The AWS was asked to comment on this earlier in the week and we said that we were concerned to ensure that defendants were properly represented and that those of our members working in the criminal justice system had access to good working conditions. If you work in the criminal justice system, do let us have your views.’
