How satisfied are you with your legal regulatory services?

5 October 2012


A new survey, commissioned by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx), aims to understand better the levels of satisfaction legal professionals have with their current regulator, and how regulatory bodies might improve services to those they regulate.

This survey, supported by Legal Futures, looks to understand more about the regulatory system, and whether providers of legal services are likely, or willing, to move between regulators and for what reason.

CILEx wants to understand more about the views of legal professionals in order to understand the likely demand for regulation through its regulatory body ILEX Professional Standards (IPS).

The survey is only open for a short period of time, and will close at 6pm on 8 October. Those who complete and submit the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad3.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
