Children's Quality Assurance Scheme


Thursday, Feb 16, 2017

The Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 introduced major changes to the way in which the hearings system operated. The Scottish Government also made substantial changes to the availability of legal aid.

Now that there is a sufficient volume of cases and solicitors will have had the opportunity to become familiar with the new arrangements, we intend to introduce a separate Children’s Quality Assurance Scheme during 2017 for all solicitors who are registered with SLAB to provide children’s legal assistance.

We will provide a further update in due course.

Find out more information on how the Routine Reviews will operate, with information on the process for failed reviews, final reviews and special reviews here.
