36 Crime announces no returns action

18th May 2018

As of 25 May 2018, all members of 36 Crime will be implementing a no returns policy in line with the Criminal Bar Association protocol in order to protect and preserve our Criminal Justice System.

We believe that the proposals threaten the proper functioning of the criminal justice system in England and Wales, and seriously jeopardise the continued existence of the publicly funded criminal bar

We support the Criminal Bar Association’s call to the Ministry of Justice not to implement these proposals as presently drafted, and to amend the scheme in line with the reasonable proposals put forward by the CBA.
