The Ministry of Law is seeking feedback on proposed amendments to the Legal Profession Act.
The Bill put forward attempts to streamline regulatory regimes into a single regulatory framework, and address practical, procedural and interpretational issues from the Act's current provisions.
Suggested changes also include empowering the Law Society to introduce a requirement for lawyers to disclose the number of hours they have spent each year on pro bono work.
