A Litigator acts for the victims of accidents, disease and injury, and seeks to establish, assert and enforce their rights through negotiation, mediation or litigation.
A Litigator will usually work under supervision. A Litigator will usually have their own files, carriage of which is their responsibility. A Litigator may work on relatively straightforward Sheriff Court cases, with fairly light supervision, they may progress to Court of Session or more valuable Sheriff Court cases, under closer supervision, or they may assist a more senior lawyer with aspects of a complex case.
If you are self-authorising at all key stages of litigation (i.e. without supervision), you may wish to apply for accreditation at Senior Litigator level.
