Our Risk Outlook

An overview of the legal market, and our regulatory priorities

We have a statutory duty to ensure the regulatory objectives, set out in the Legal Services Act 2007, are met. This Outlook is a forward looking report highlighting the biggest risks to these regulatory objectives over the next few years, where we 
summarise our evidence and present our analysis.

Inevitably, it focuses on what could go wrong due to our focus on the biggest risks, but these also present opportunities for the Bar and its consumers.

This is our first Risk Outlook. It was published in April 2016. The market and associated risks will change and new evidence will emerge. We will publish updates in the future. In the meantime we want to share our insights and engage with the Bar and other interested parties to discuss how we address these risks over time.
