British regulator to probe status of legal executives

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) In Britain has launched its consultation into its proposals for the potential regulation of Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX) lawyers.

Law Society of England and Wales President Lubna Shuja said: “While the SRA and CILEX have said they believe that the proposals will benefit consumers, our view is that there is a higher risk of causing greater confusion for when they are choosing the appropriate legal provider to meet their needs.


“This consultation is an important opportunity for solicitors to make their views known and have a say on what is being proposed for CILEX lawyers.

“Whilst we appreciate that many of our members hire, supervise and work with CILEX lawyers, we are also mindful that many do not. We will be working with all of our members to gather their views and respond to the consultation, whilst also encouraging them to submit their own responses too.”
