The Law Society would like to hear views on options to promote better legal practices through a proactive approach to regulation.
Compliance-based entity regulation is a proactive form of regulation which may serve the public interest by helping lawyers and paralegals improve their practice standards and client service.
The Law Society would like your views on a number of questions including:
– Which practice management principles should be included? These could include client management, file management, and financial management and sustainability.
– Should entities or firms be required to register with the Law Society?
– Should a lawyer or paralegal be designated by each firm to have particular regulatory responsibilities?
The Task Force on Compliance-Based Entity Regulation has prepared a consultation paper that provides background information and sets out a series of issues and related questions for consideration and comment.
The LSUC very interested in hearing your views on options for compliance-based entity regulation and encourages you to make a submission, by March 31, through one of the following methods:
1. Through its online form
2. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
