Children's Legal Assistance - Expressions of Interest

To help us plan for the implementation of the Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011, we would like to collect expressions of interest from solicitors who intend to do this work.

We would therefore be grateful if you could complete the short questionnaire below.

Please note that this is NOT the registration process to apply for entry to the Children's Legal Assistance Register. That formal process will commence later in the year and before implementation of the new arrangements.

* 1. Do you intend to register to provide Children's Legal Assistance when the changes are implemented in September 2012.

* 2. When more information is available, would you consider participation in a cover (duty) scheme for specified hearings?

* 3. Please select the location(s) of the Children's Hearings Centre you would intend to cover.
