Glasgow City Council v SLAB judicial review case


Friday, Jan 12, 2018

You may have seen the recently reported decision in the judicial review petition of Glasgow City Council against the Scottish Legal Aid Board and PQ.

The Lord Ordinary quashed the decision of SLAB to grant legal aid to PQ because he considered that the applicant failed to give fair notice of his case to the authority whose decision was challenged. 

We have initiated an appeal against the decision by reclaiming motion. 

Procedures for civil legal aid applications will remain as now pending conclusion of appeal proceedings.
