Campaign update

Govan Law Centre gave evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s Economy Committee and helped persuade the Scottish Government to withdraw the draft Bankruptcy Fees (Scotland) Order 2017, which would have seen some fees against homeowners increase by almost 200%.

We recently provided an in-house Solicitor Advocate service for clients undertaking urgent petitions for judicial reviews in the Court of Session against HMRC, the Scottish Government and local authorities, together with actions for suspension and interdict.We undertook in-house appeals to the Inner House of the Court of Session for issues concerning fair rents, and housing grants.

We established a pilot women’s rights legal service in partnership with Tea in the Pot and Govan Law Centre made a contribution to their funding.
