Clients will get swifter and cheaper justice following the incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights into British law, according to Bar European Group chair Nicholas Paines QC. "I think it will be more economic and certainly quicker," said Paines of Labour's decision to allow human rights cases to go directly to the British Courts. The widely anticipated change in the law, announced in last week's Queen's Speech, was one of the main talking points at the group's conference in Strasbourg on 10 May, attended by about 50 barristers. Paines said he expected a small flood of cases to come to the British courts in the next few months and added that work in human rights law was set to increase significantly.
