Qualified Legal Representatives Appointed by the Court

Presented by Elissa Da Costa-Waldman

A new Practice Direction (PD 3AB) now governs the practice and procedure in relation to the prohibition of a particular party from cross examination of a witness (usually in domestic abuse cases) and the Ministry of Justice has published statutory guidance on the role of qualified legal representatives whom the court will appoint to conduct such cross-examination.
