The new General Criminal Contract restructures criminal work and introduces new claiming rules, both of which will affect remuneration. This book provides an essential reference on the workings of the new scheme and related areas of publicly funded work such as prison law, the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) and Administrative Court work. Each section will begin with an overview of each funding area with a detailed and referenced explanation of what can and cannot be claimed and how to comply with the new requirements. The book is comprehensively cross referenced to costs assessment guidance and key court decisions. Readers will be able to access the most up-to-date materials via a dedicated website which will also provide a news link and email service to keep practitioners abreast of changes in this fast-moving area.
