New Law Society Consultation on Change to Conflict of Interest Rules

By Michael Sheridan

We would ask members to note that the Law Society of Scotland announced a consultation on proposed changes to the Conflict of Interest Rules. This was announced on 19th January 2018 and a response is due by the 16th of February 2018.

When such a short consultation period is proposed, one has to doubt whether there is any serious intention to receive a response.  Nevertheless, if members would wish SLAS to mention any particular matters in response to this consultation, then please advise the Secretary by email at Secretary@slas.co.uk.

Details of the proposed changes can be found within the consultation papers found on the Law Society’s website at https://www.lawscot.org.uk/media/359481/consultationpapersjan18.pdf

Members should consider these papers and ensure to submit a response before the 16th of February at conflictofinterestconsult@lawscot.org.uk
