Justices Development Committee 13 September 2010
The Justices Development Committee of the Scottish Justices Association met on 13 September 2010. Members were updated on a number of training and related matters (including progress on revision of Bench Book and Signing Manual) by Gillian Mawdsley, JP consultant to JSC. They also made further progress with the proposed investigation into the Justice/Legal Adviser relationship by confirming the final shape of the questionnaire and the accompanying letter for submission to the executive. Among other topics discussed were: the model format for local JP consultative forums agreed between Dumbarton court and SCS, and the future provision of appraiser training.
