Cadder Appeals

In October 2010, the case of Cadder changed the law in Scotland. The Supreme Court ruled that police could no longer interview suspects in Scotland without allowing them access to a solicitor. The decision was not retrospective but did apply to live, pending and on-going cases. In June 2011, we were involved in one of only three test cases in Scotland appealed on a Cadder point at the Supreme Court in London. On 6 October 2011 the Supreme Court issued it’s decision on these cases all of which sought to extend the rationale laid down in Cadder.┬áIf you wish to know more about these cases, a summary of the decisions can be found by clicking here >
