ABSTRACT
The article reports on the aversion of a proposed barristers' strike after the suspension of controversial pilot schemes for new criminal court procedures. Criminal barristers had been poised to go on strike over the introduction of plea and case management hearings, which are replacing plea and directions hearings in Crown Court cases. The new hearings will take up more of a barrister's time and will require the barrister. Bar Council chair Guy Mansfield QC and Criminal Bar Association chair David Spens QC have been lobbying the Government to introduce appropriate levels of remuneration.
