Proposals for reform of the Legal Profession Act
The Law Reform Committee of the Bar Council have prepared the Bar’s draft recommendations for amendment of the Legal Profession Act.
Among the major changes proposed are:
- Reconstituting the ExCo to consist only of elected members.
- Requiring all lawyers licensed prior to the LPA to sit the Bar Exam at their first licence renewal in 2024.
- Allowing law students to commence their Licensing Training during their period of study for the LLB.
- Where there is a shortage of training supervisors, allowing the BCM to organise training programmes (of a minimum of 6 months) that will replace the 1-year training under an individual training supervisor.
All members of the Bar Council are invited to review the draft proposals and to share their thoughts and views on the draft proposals. Suggestions may be the emailed to the Bar Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
