Best value review of the cost of civil legal aid cases

We are continuing our series of Best Value Reviews to identify the scope for reducing the costs associated with civil legal aid cases. These include: cases where both parties are in receipt of legal aid; and the use and cost of bar reports. We will carry out this work in consultation with the legal profession and make recommendations to the Scottish Government.
