Scottish Civil Justice Council
The Scottish Civil Justice Council (SCJC) has published its second newsletter update.
At its meeting last week the council agreed to consider draft rules by correspondence in the Postal Administration Rules (Scotland) 2016 with a view that they be submitted to the Court of Session for consideration before the next meeting:
The rules would make provision to ensure that the universal postal service is maintained in the event that a company providing such a service becomes insolvent.
Following discussions, these provisions are now not due to come into force until October 2016 and accordingly draft rules will be considered at the next appropriate council meeting.
The SCJC is also jointly funding a Scottish Legal Aid Board research proposal on alternative dispute resolution.View all →
