MoJ sets out plans to simplify legal services regulation and cut back 'unnecessary burdens'
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has announced a new push to simplify the regulation of the legal services market and cut back "unnecessary burdens" it believes are holding back the sector. Justice minister Helen Grant, who introduced the review last week, said it had been prompted by concerns raised with ministers over "the complexities of the current legal services regulatory landscape". At least 10 pieces of primary legislation and more than 30 statutory instruments covering the full breadth of the legislative framework will be reviewed, the MoJ said.
