Public authority horizon scanning 2010

25 August 2010

We appreciate this is a time of unprecedented change for you, and so, as lawyers with public authority expertise, we have produced an horizon scanning document. The intention has been to provide you with guidance, commentary and practical advice on some of the key legal challenges affecting your departments, both now and in the future.

We have produced the document in two parts - the first is focused on the big, strategic issues you are likely to face and the second provides more operational detail to support your day-to-day work and ultimately help deliver efficiency savings.
