Criminal Defence Action

Octagon Chambers wish to support local solicitors in the action that has been widely agreed.

To that end the criminal team have agreed that:

Individual barristers will not undertake work on cases with a representation order dated after 9th July 2015.

Individual barristers will not be available to accept returns of legal aid defence cases as from close of business on Wednesday, 8th July 2015.

We hope that this stance will be understood by all and we apologise for any inconvenience which may flow but it is a stance undertaken to preserve and safeguard the standards of representation of those involved in the criminal justice system.
