The Law Society's criminal law committee has had a "tremendously good response" to calls for solicitors to serve on the committee, which advises the Law Society on criminal law issues.

It is now drawing up a shortlist of candidates to interview and hopes to fill the seats by the beginning of the next council year, in the autumn. Committee chair Robert Roscoe said: "It's terrific that there are so many able people willing to give up so much of their time and who want to play a part in advising the Law Society."
