The Executive is at present considering recommendations made by the Justice 1 Committee in the report which it published on 27 November 2002 on its inquiry into the regulation of the legal profession. The committee recommended the continuation of self-regulation, subject to the strengthening of safeguards, the enhancement of the role of the Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman and an increase in lay involvement in the complaints handling process.

The Executive will respond to the committee’s recommendations as soon as possible.
