Paul Mendelle QC

Yesterday I spoke to Paul Mendelle QC, joint head of chambers at 25 Bedford Row and former chair of the Criminal Bar Association, about the government’s proposals on criminal legal aid. He explained his opposition to price competitive tendering and his thoughts on very high cost cases (VHCCs).

He also told me the thinking behind his question to Andy Slaughter MP at last week’s “Legal Aid Question Time” – and what he thought of the answer.
