Advocate Panel 2016-20 List

Advocate Panel 2016-20 List (Excel .xlsx file 213kb) updated 02 August 2017

This is a list of all members of the new CPS Advocate Panel 2016-20 list, who have either been invited to join without further application (in accordance with the published transitional criteria), and have accepted their invitation; or have applied successfully during the September 2016 application window i.e. this list has now been updated to reflect the results of the September 2016 intake.

The old CPS Advocate Panel 2012-16 list was due to remain in place until the end of 2016; and has now been retired. Members of the old list, who do not appear on the new list, may retain any CPS instructions already accepted, but may not accept any new CPS instructions until they secure a place on the new list (either by successfully appealing their September 2016 application result, or applying successfully during the September 2017 application window).
