May the Farce be With You – Duty Solicitor Rotas return in Crime

Oh dear – yet again crime solicitors find themselves unable to work out what or where they will be in a years time. Hopefully some certainty will come into play sooner or later and the political see saw will balance in the middle for a while. We understand that the new rota deadline is 12th February 2016. If any duty solicitors want to drop us an email we will keep you posted with any vacancies coming our way.

We will only process duty solicitor rota vacancies (ie those for solicitors looking to do the minimum to comply – usually termed monthly retainers – rather than full time salaried) for TenPercent Unlimited firms. If you are looking to get out of crime we wrote an article last year about ways of doing this – you can find this at
