PLF Meeting

CLAF : Towards a self-funding scheme for civil litigation?

1st October 2009

A Group led by former Bar Chairman Guy Mansfield QC (and commissioned by the Bar Council's Policy Advisory Group) has recently considered the adoption of a Contingent Legal Aid Fund (CLAF), whereby a pooled fund would be created which would be financed by sums derived from successful civil litigation. The fund would then fund further litigation. This seminar will examine and evaluate the concept, and compare the similar schemes which exist in other commonwealth countries.

This is an invitation only event.
