QASA given green light to proceed

The SRA has welcomed the decision of the Court of Appeal to dismiss the Judicial Review of the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates (QASA).

Chief Executive Paul Philip said: "We are pleased that the Court of Appeal has upheld the scheme and we can now move ahead with implementation. QASA is key to providing us with a means of ensuring that standards of criminal advocacy are upheld.

"We now need to consider the judgment carefully and identify next steps. We will issue information about a revised timetable for registration shortly."
