DAS has published a wide-ranging white paper on the likely outcomes of the MOJ’s proposed whiplash reforms.  The paper examines the consequences of the government reforms, which have been designed to address the amount of compensation being paid by the insurance industry for soft tissue injuries and the knock-on effect this could have for people who sustain injuries.

DAS experts are available to provide their views on issues such as; will the reforms reduce access to justice for legitimate injury claims; will claims be settled for less than is entitled; will the self-employed lose out; what up-front charges will injured parties need to pay when pursuing claims through small claims court, and will they be prohibitive?

The ethics of the SRA’s social media warning notice

Mena Ruparel

Social media portals are regularly used by firms and those who work for law firms in both professional and personal capacities. Their informal nature and the fast pace of use makes it all too easy for regulated people to get carried away with online discussions or comments which can fall foul of the regulator. This is more likely to happen on social media platforms as these are virtual, accessed in the solicitor’s own time and space. It can be easy to forget that solicitors are regulated just the same at 11pm on their home computer as they are at 3pm in the office or at court.
