Quality Assured

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Few regulatory changes have provoked quite such a stir as the Quality Assurance Scheme for Advocates (QASA). The ongoing row over the controversial programme (designed to assess all advocates against a set of standard criteria) reached fever-pitch this week as Sir Brian Leveson handed down a decision from the Queen’s Bench.
