A north London firm, Hickman Rose, has succeeded in its action to stop the Legal Aid Board's (LAB) plan to suspend the use of non-solicitor representatives on the City of London duty solicitor scheme. The practice had applied in June 1996 for a judicial review of a decision by the London regional duty solicitor's committee to change its rules regarding representatives.
