The Criminal Quality Assurance scheme was created in partnership with the Law Society of Scotland. It is overseen by the Criminal Quality Assurance Committee (CQAC), which comprises three members appointed by us, three members appointed by the Society and three independent or lay members appointed in consultation with the Society.
Full details on how the scheme operates are available below and you can also view the guidelines.
The Coordinator for the Criminal Quality Assurance Scheme is Lynsey Calder, who can be contacted on CalderLy@slab.org.uk.
Please contact Kingsley Thomas, Manager of Criminal Legal Assistance, on 0131 240 2085 or by email, if you have any queries about quality assurance.
