Legal Services instruct barristers on behalf
of client departments for a range of legal work including housing
and general litigation, planning litigation and child-care
proceedings as well as others. Since 2012 Lambeth and Southwark
have operated a joint barristers’ framework, and this will
expire on 31 August 2020.
The Council now seeks to access another existing framework over the coming four years to enable Legal Services’ officers to instruct barristers and ensure continuity of business.
