CAS response to the Legal Services Regulation Reform in Scotland consultation

Citizens Advice Scotland has responded to the Scottish Government's Legal Services Regulation Reform in Scotland consultation

The consultation, based on recommendations from an independent review of the regulation of legal services , will run until 24 December 2021 and will seek views on options for change that have been developed collaboratively with legal and consumer stakeholders, designed to lead to improvements to the transparency and accountability in the way in which legal services are regulated, and the legal complaints system operates in Scotland.

Any changes to the regulation of legal services would have ramifications to the Citizens Advice Network and legal consumers. Our response contains our views of potential models of regulation, entity regulation and how the legal complaints system should operate.
