Justices Development Committee
The Justices Development Committee met on 4 February 2010 in the Sheriff Court Building in Edinburgh. Much of the time was taken up considering the two matters referred to the committee by the executive:
· Review the Legal Advisor/JP relationship
· Review the JP working environment.
It also heard of progress being made towards the establishment of a local forum for justices in discussions with SCS in relation to one court and considered the possible extension of the model beyond that sheriffdom.
