Children's duty scheme

Tuesday, Sep 17, 2013

The plans for the Children’s Duty Scheme covering the period 30 September 2013 to 20 June 2014 are now available on our website

We will not be sending individual notifications to firms detailing allocated slots. You need to check the plans for the areas where you indicated you would be willing to act as a duty firm to identify your duty week(s).

Duty plans for the Glasgow area have been oversubscribed and so we have allocated slots on this plan strictly in date order of registration for the duty scheme. A reserve list has been drawn up and firms on that list will be contacted separately about this.

For details of the statutory provisions relating to the children’s duty scheme and information on the current payment arrangements for duty scheme solicitors, please see the eligibility criteria.
