Short Update: Legal aid firms in London urged to let lawyers stay at home

The London Criminal Courts Solicitors' Association asked legal aid firms to allow staff to work from home to safeguard solicitors' health. One large legal aid practice has already pushed back against Government guidance and set out that no individual remaining at home will be guaranteed pay, unless a government support scheme is set up. The Association acknowledged that some legal aid firms may have less modern technological support frameworks in place than other types of firms, but nevertheless set out that the majority of client consultations can be carried out over the phone or if required, delayed.
