Following on from our post on the Ministry of Justice's call for evidence regarding the regulatory framework of the profession, The Law Society has published its vision and response.
In the report, The Law Society sets out reasoning why it considers that the current regulatory framework is not fit for purpose and creates a burden upon its members which is too high. The Law Society calls for a greater professional involvement in regulation and rejects the call that a single independent regulator should be created.
The report directly considers the role and performance of the SRA. It also considers the role of the LSB, noting that the LSB has often sought to involve itself with policy decisions, which, the Law Society states, has blurred the lines between the role of the LSB and the SRA.
We are interested to hear your thoughts. Do you agree with the Law Society?
