Instructing Solicitors – A Practical Guide


This course will consider various scenarios which may arise when instructing solicitors are to advise a charity and to ensure the instructions are concise, accurate and request what is required. We will cover: when it is appropriate for a charity to instruct a solicitor; the things that the charity needs to watch out for when instructing a solicitor;  what information the letter of instruction needs to contain, including the type of supporting evidence to be provided; and the different types of professional advice available to the charity.
