  • What stupidity.

    There is no reason a qualified barrister shouldn't be able to sign a statement of truth.

    Just fuse the profession already, like every other common law jurisdiction.

  • Never mind the statement of truth, they complained about a qualified lawyer, not acting as counsel, sending a court document to the other side. The BSB are an absolute disgrace, and they should hang their head in shame,

  • Something political about this case maybe? Public access and LDPs are both very unpopular with the BSB. She was a pioneer in both. Who was the BSB's "sponsor" of this complaint who oversaw the prosecution? That information might reveal a lot.

  • If they are not careful, the BSB may risk the continuing status of the Bar as separate and distinct from other lawyers. Chambers are beginning to look and act like Law Firms already.

  • This new llp looks to me like a grey area where this barrister can conduct a business by not having to use a solicitor and run cases with 2 hats on. Very peculiar and runs the risk of people not doing there job correctly as it isn't under a firm foundation.
