  • I am a dual qualified English and Irish lawyer and very much welcome this long overdue development. Alan Shatter is to be commended for his initiative. The change recognises that the law belongs to the people of Ireland and is not the exclusive preserve of the Law Society or the Bar Council.

  • Bravo, the irish must be reigned into line, they no longer act as a functioning element of worthy global justice. What company would have confidence taking business there yet they do.
    Complaints against legal services in the Republic of Ireland are statisically few which isn't at all representative of independent surveys conducted in view of the country's economic woes. A false positive by law society (self regulation) standards.
    Nevertheless, that is not a reason why the
    customers of legal service providers should have access to complaints less consumer oriented than those available elsewhere in the world. Equally the wider regulator framework everywhere as a matter of good practice needs to be reviewed to ensure that
    the market operates to provide value-for-money, quality, legal ser vices with only necessary
    and appropriate restrictions placed on those wishing to provide such ser vices
