The Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 will introduce the biggest changes to policing in more than 30 years. These changes will have an enormous impact on the day to day working practices of Criminal Defence solicitors, introducing significant and meaningful changes to issues pertaining to the custody, detention and welfare of suspects and accused persons. As a Criminal Defence solicitor, it is imperative to understand the full implications of these monumental legislative changes.
CCPD Training are working with Colin Drummond, who was the Police Scotland tactical training lead on the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act Delivery Team. Colin organised hundreds of day training sessions over 18 months to the entirety of the Scottish police force at every level, and is the definitive leading expert on the Act and its implications.

Our speakers will bring you up to minute information on progress and practice in the All Scotland Personal Injury Court, and current thinking on most effectively deploying experts in personal injury litigation. With the Holyrood Justice Committee having now endorsed the principal of removing limitation for childhood abuse claims, we will review the history of these claims before the Courts, the current shape of the Bill, and what practitioners need to know for the future. We will also examine the scope, extent and on-going development of vicarious liability, and will consider the impact of technological advances for those affected by catastrophic injuries, while also addressing the impact of the introduction of the new discount rate.
