As required under section 34 (1)(i) Legal Services Regulatory Act 2015, the Legal Services Regulatory Authority (LSRA) is currently inviting interested parties to make written submissions ahead of its report for the Minister for Justice in relation to the creation of a new profession of conveyancer in Ireland.

As part of the preparation process for the Law Society’s submission, it is inviting interested solicitors with relevant experience and knowledge to provide their views to conveyancingsubmission@lawsociety.ie by Wednesday 27 October 2021 to ensure that these are reviewed as part of the process.  

Issues to be considered include the impact that the establishment of a new profession of conveyancer could have in terms of competition in the provision of legal services and the specific implications, positive or negative, for the legal services sector and the solicitors’ profession. For the full list of relevant questions that the LSRA has provided, see section 4 of the consultation document.
