Abstract

This paper reports on an exploratory study into the ‘Impact of the Introduction of Fixed Payments into Summary Legal Aid’ commissioned by the Scottish Executive and carried out by a team of independent academic researchers from the University of Strathclyde. Fixed payments for summary criminal legal aid were prescribed in the Criminal Legal Aid Fixed Payments (Scotland) Regulations 1999 as amended by the Criminal Legal Aid (Fixed Payments) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2002. They were implemented from 1st April 1999. In the decade prior to the introduction of fixed fees the total cost of summary legal aid had risen by 65% in real terms.
