The product of a collaboration between Ed Cape and Lee Bridges (Professor of Law, Warwick University), this is a comprehensive analysis of the CDS (Criminal Defence Service) Direct policy. CDS Direct has significant implications for the right of a suspect arrested and detained by the police to consult a solicitor. The authors conclude that it undermines the statutory right to legal advice, is potentially in breach of Article 6 ECHR rights, and was introduced to cap legal aid expenditure.
