The CBA proposes that members consider the following actions to secure proper investment in the Criminal Justice system. The association cannot direct action, only advise and recommend. It is every barrister’s individual decision how to proceed in her or his professional affairs.
Refuse instructions on all cases subject to a representation order dated on or after 1st April 2018 and;
Take part with other organisations involved in the Criminal Justice system in targeted Days of Action to highlight the crisis in the system. Dates and details of such action will be notified to members privately and;
Consider escalating this action using other methods as decided on and advised by the CBA Executive Committee in due course.
