BSB responds to today's Government proposal on opening legal services market

30 November 2015

BSB Director-General Dr Vanessa Davies said, "We note this morning's government announcement about a consultation on full separation of legal regulators and the representative bodies, and on making access to ABSs easier.

"We look forward to contributing to drawing up the consultation document, on the basis of our experience and expertise. The Bar Standards Board welcomes a debate on the complete separation of the regulatory and representative functions. It could be in the public interest and could allow regulatory and representative bodies to be stronger in their respective roles."
