Commercial and Chancery Bar: Together as one
The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has given the question of how the Legal Services Act (LSA) will affect it in the future extensive consideration and consultation. The reality is that the consequences of this significant statute simply cannot yet be known, although it is clear it facilitates a potentially fundamental change in the way in which legal services will be provided to consumers in England and Wales. The Act represents both uncertainty and opportunity for all those it affects. The BSB has recently issued a consultation paper seeking views on the implications of the LSA, in order that future regulation is informed, as far as is possible, by the realities of practice and in the interests of the consumer, as well as clarifying the uncertainty and permitting the potential to be realised.
