26 April 2012


Legal market research company Jures is undertaking the next in a series of reports on the Legal Services Act. The report will explore law firms’ attitudes to alternative business structures (ABSs) and Legal Futures readers are welcome to contribute to the survey for the report.

The aim of the research is to find out what drivers, if any, are attracting law firms to convert to an ABS. It will look at the potential different models and seek to identify the pros and cons for law firms and new market entrants of adopting an ABS structure.

The final report will be distributed across the UK’s leading 200+ firms and as such, forms a useful piece of benchmarking. There will also be a panel debate to discuss the findings of the survey. Further details will be published here soon.

The link to the survey questions is here. Responses will be anonymous, so complete confidentiality is assured. Ideally, every question should be answered. The cut-off date for replies is 8 May.

Previous Jures reports can be downloaded for free here.

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

mena_ruparel

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
