Unsuccessful claim against Legal Aid Board.


Interesting comments include: "Mental health law is difficult enough today. Reading the report of a psychiatrist, identifying its areas of weakness, commissioning evidence from the appropriate expert to challenge it, and representing a client at a tribunal requires expert professional skills born, as we have said, of education and practical experience. It is not like going down to the magistrates' court as a duty solicitor, arduous though those duties are." (para 571)
