Nearly a Bulls-eye

The Law Society seem to have got their response to the Preferred Supplier Scheme about right.
They too spot the drift away from “low up-front entry criteria” implied by an increase in remote monitoring, Peer Review and file assessment. They also, again concurring with our experience, describe the last two elements as not yet being “sufficiently refined”.
Problems with Relationship Mangers and the age old issue of schemes like this resulting in “spending more, rather less, unremunerated time meeting the LSC’s requirements” are also covered.
Where we diverge are Devolved Powers. Most of the feedback we’ve received is the opposite – we would rather they made speedy grants of certificates and we faced less paperwork and the risk of retrospective sanction.
That aside sensible, measured analysis which will probably achieve little practical amendment to the proposals.
