Legal Services Bill

The Legal Services Bill was published on 24 November 2005. A new Legal Services Board will act as a single, independent and publicly accountable regulator with power to enforce high standards in the legal sector. The Bill also introduces:

  • an alternative business structure which will allow multi-discilinary practices;
  • an Office for Legal Complaints which will remove complaints handling from lawyers.

The Legal Services Bill follows the publication of a draft Legal Services Bill in May 2006 and the White Paper, The Future of Legal Services - Putting Consumers First in October 2005. For the full news story see January [2007] Fam Law.
