BSB statement on the government’s response to the call for evidence on the review of the legal services regulatory framework

A BSB spokesperson said:
"The Bar Standards Board is pleased the government's review has now concluded. We note from the Ministerial Statement issued today that the government has decided not to pursue any changes to the statutory framework or to extend the scope of regulation to new areas. We will continue to modernise our regulatory regime to offer more flexibility and innovation, while ensuring that the public is properly protected.

"We also look forward to working with a refreshed Legal Services Board and its new Chair, in the public interest."

ENDS
