Legal Affairs and Policy Board Meeting from Linda Lee, President of the Law Society

On Tuesday I attended the Legal Affairs and Policy Board meeting. Christina Blacklaws, the new Chair, oversaw a number of the significant discussions we had. We discussed a wide range of issues including:

  • Access to Justice Review;
  • Legal Aid, including the contract tender, support following the civil tender round and mental health legal aid tenders;
  • the Society’s response to Lord Justice Jackson’s review of costs in civil litigation;
  • Lenders and Panels;
  • regulation of lobbyists;
  • Cafcass;
  • legal expenses insurance and third party capture;
  • confidentiality and insolvency of Clients;
  • and the ECJ judgment on the Akzo Nobel case.
