CORONAVIRUS LATEST

As we continue to grapple as a society with Coronavirus , we are now starting to see  guidance being issued to the legal profession over how to respond although much more will and needs to be issued as the virus continues to increase its effects in the United Kingdom .

Announcements are coming very quickly and we now have confirmation that the Court estate is being changed with operational courts and staffed courts which will not be open to the public . THe Court system is promoting social distancing wherever possible but it is clear that there are signficant challenges .

This site now has a dedicated page on the Virus so we can continue to give you Law Society and other relevant guidance . We have also set below A Tabbed Guide to current arrangements in our societies areas . This is dependent on input form each society as things change .

In the meantime take sensible precautions to protect yourselves and those whom you act in a professional capacity .
