The Legal Services Board

Just noticed that this leviathan came into being on 1st January 2010


Its mission?

We are the new, independent body responsible for overseeing the regulation of lawyers in England and Wales. Our goal is to reform and modernise the legal services market place by putting the interests of consumers at the heart of the system, reflecting the objectives of the statute that created us, the Legal Services Act 2007.


  1. I had forgotten... I shall investigate... enjoyed reading the 'Register of member' interests.

    Will it be a white elephant? .. another monumental waste of time and public money... shaping up that way?

    So we have a regulator to regulate the regulators...

  2. Indeed - but who shall regulate the regulator of regulators?

    The medical profession has the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence which regulates the medical professional regulators - which the medical profession believes to have been a roaring disaster.
