The article reports that the search for lay members of the selection panel that will choose the first group of Great Britain's Queen's Counsels (QC) to be appointed under the new scheme was launched recently. A joint Law Society and Bar Council advertisement sought "applications from all sections of the community" for the three lay positions on the panel. The majority of the panel, however, will be nominated directly by Law Society president Edward Nally and Bar Council chair Guy Mansfield QC.
