Who we are

Our mission is to protect the public interest, provide consumer choice and to promote effective competition in the legal services market. We do so by setting entry standards and regulating providers to deliver high quality, accessible legal services.

7th May 2014: CLC urges government not to give up on legal services modernisation

The Council for Licensed Conveyancers was disappointed with the Ministry of Justice’s announcement that it plans to do nothing more in relation to the review of regulation of legal services on 1 May 2014.

We are surprised that a review under the Red Tape Challenge deregulatory agenda is not able to identify any measures that could be changed as part of a portmanteau deregulation bill. But even without primary legislation, the consumer benefits of further modernisation could be considerable. The Legal Services Act 2007 needs more time to bed down, but the Legal Services Board and front line regulators should be working together with the support of the Ministry to remove obstacles to change and improvement. <Read more.>
