“Where a lease provided for quiet enjoyment that meant an ability to use the premises in an ordinary lawful way.

“The Archbishop of Westminster had an unfettered discretion to appoint who he wished as a foundation governor of a Roman Catholic school in his diocese provided the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2007 were complied with, and that included appointing his diocesan director of education as a governor at the school. The requirement in regulation 18 that two of the foundation governors should at the time of their appointment be eligible for election or appointment as parent governors was fulfilled by the presence on the existing governing body of two foundation governors who had been so eligible when they were appointed.”

Lawcast 183: Nichola Higgins, Chairman of The Young Barristers Committee on the new CPS panel – Career at the Criminal Bar – Legal aid issues – Charon WC

“Today I am talking to Nichola Higgins, Chairman of the Young Barristers Committee. On the 30th March of this year, the CPS announced:

‘The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is today (30/3/2011) launching a new scheme for the delivery of prosecution services in court. All advocates undertaking prosecution work in the Crown Court (and Higher Courts) from October must be members of new, quality-controlled CPS Advocate Panels. The panels will be open to all barristers and solicitor advocates, and panel members will complement and work alongside CPS in-house advocates. Although the overall number of advocates on the panels will be reduced compared to the current lists, selected advocates will have more opportunity to undertake prosecution work. All current counsel lists will be abandoned when the panels commence on 1 October.’

We also looked at the broader health of the Criminal Bar, the impact of legal aid and the prospects for students contemplating a career at the Criminal Bar.”
