Professional Regulation

Innovating Regulation
June 6, 2016

In November 2015 the Legal Profession Act was amended to give the Law Society authority to govern the entities through which lawyers provide legal services. Since then the Law Society has been working to develop a framework for the regulation of entities that will enhance its ability to protect the public interest.

The Society is considering the adoption of a compliance based or outcomes focused model, which is one form of proactive entity regulation that is rapidly gaining traction around the globe. It is a model which focuses on management principles and outcomes that have the potential to benefit both the public and the profession.

Come and learn about these important developments and how entity regulation may impact you and your law firm. Find out about the consultation process and how you can provide your input.
