Notice from Guardian Ad Litem Agency regarding 2020 reconstitution of their Solicitor Panel

The NIGALA Solicitor Panel is scheduled for reconstitution as the five year term 2015-2020 is nearing completion.

Eligibility to seek appointment to the NIGALA Panel requires Solicitors to be members of the  Law Society’s Children Order Panel for a minimum of two years.

There are currently 95 Solicitors on the NIGALA Panel and it is anticipated that a number of Solicitors would be interested in seeking reappointment and others to join the Panel.

The Agency had progressed work on the reconstitution process and was scheduled to issue notification of the recruitment exercise in May 2020 including information events for new applicants.

The Covid-19 pandemic and associated restrictions have resulted in the Agency taking a decision to defer the process for six months and review thereafter to determine when it is feasible to proceed.
