Regulating The Legal Profession conference
24 November 2011
The Republic of Ireland has recently published its Legal Services Regulation Bill which is close to the Legal Services Act 2007.
It will mean an external, lay-dominated regulator for the legal profession and it will allow the setting up of multi-disciplinary practices involving lawyers and non-lawyers delivering legal services.
The Centre for Regulation and Governance at University College Dublin is holding a conference on Regulating the Legal Profession and its consequences on 25 November.
International speakers are set to include: Lynn Mather, University at Buffalo; John Flood, University of Westminster; and Julian Webb, University of Warwick.
