  • Sector regulation

    Almost any change in the way the sector is regulated presently is worth a shot. The way it currently seems to work is that the Law Society fails, gets fined for its failure, pays the fine with my (and your) fee contributions then carries on roughly as usual. A bit of private sector experience added t the mix might just prove the answer.

    I have no reason to doubt the capability of the lawyers in question, but clearly any lawyer busy actually lawyering isn't going to have time to add on a part-time role like this. Appointing people for £15k for one month a year might keep costs down, but could also be a false economy.

    What can I say a board that is to regulate activities of both the Bar and Solicitors Profession has a board overwhelmingly consisting of solicitors? Need I say more as to where the government believes the legal profession should be heading?

    Not a business person among them then? Boards direct, where are the experienced directors?

    I think Terence has experience of quite a few boards (he was on the board at Mirror Group, for one), and some of the others could do too. Probably left out for the sake of brevity.

    So, as well as the Law Society, SRA, SDT and LCS, we now have another regulatory board - the LSB.How can this possibly be regarded as 'simplifying regulation in the legal services sector'?

    Has City partner not heard of the concept of a non executive role? And of people doing things *after* being a City partner?
