Post Online: Legal reform - Uncertainty abounds as LASPO countdown continues

July 25, 2012 at 6:00 PM

John Spencer speaks to the Post Online on the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders (LASPO) Bill and its introduction next April.

"While much of the industry has accepted that change is inevitable, there is widespread concern that some of the critical parts of the Act are still to be finalised, and may not be before the deadline"

"John Spencer, director of Spencers Solicitors, says that, while there might be fundamental differences in terms of what each side would like the provisions to be, frustrations are shared. 'There's a lack of clarity and joined-up thinking. Jackson said his reforms were intended to be a series of interlocking measures,' he says. 'There are also issues beyond Jackson; for example, the introduction of ABSs and their impact on the pending referral fee ban.'"
