Legal Assistance Handbooks now accessed directly from our website

Thursday, Apr 27, 2017

The Criminal, Civil, Legislation and Children’s (2011 Act) Legal Assistance Handbooks are now hosted directly on our website.

We previously sent you an email to let you know we would be making this change to provide a more flexible platform and eliminate some of the problems experienced with the previous software, such as hyperlinks not working.

The handbooks are still accessed from the same section of our website and initial feedback is that solicitors are finding them easier to navigate and search.

The handbook for Children’s Proceedings under the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 remains on the previous platform due to the extremely low number of cases that are conducted under this Act. All other handbooks on this platform will no longer be updated so please update any bookmarks you have stored on your computer.
