SCJC winter tour concludes

The Scottish Civil Justice Council’s (SCJC) winter tour has now finished with nearly 80 people attending sessions held at the sheriff courts in Aberdeen, Inverness and Glasgow.

Presentations, delivered by council members and lawyers from the Lord President’s Private Office, provided information on court reform and upcoming changes.

The three sessions were attended by solicitors, sheriff officers, in-court advisors, and courts and tribunals staff. Following the presentations, attendees were given the opportunity to ask questions or raise points which will now be considered in the review of the rule changes.

For more information see the SCJC website.

In particular, the council is interested in feedback in relation to the practical effect of the rules which came into force on 22 September 2015 and also the approach adopted for the simple procedure rules.
