One Response to “Further reading”

  1. I have read that with the implementation of the LSA, this will place the UK in the vanguard to promote global change in the legal services sector through the introduction of alternative business structures (ABS).

    As we know each jurisdiction has its own regulators and operating requirements for its legal practitioners.

    What is the general view on this? Or does the prospect flatter to deceive?

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

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.
