Tonight, Glasgow's Royal Faculty of Procurators hosted an informative and passionate debate on the future of Scotland's legal profession in relation to the Legal Services (Scotland) Bill.
Chaired by the Dean of the Faculty, Paul Carnan, the audience of experienced practitioners heard from Alan Campbell, Managing Partner, Dundas & Wilson LLP; Mike Dailly, Principal Solicitor, GLC; John McGovern, Solicitor-Advocate and President of the Glasgow Bar Association; and Ian Smart, President of the Law Society of Scotland. A wide ranging debate took place with excellent contributions from the audience.
Representatives from the Scottish Law Agents Society advised participants that the Parliament's Justice Committee had announced the Stage 1 report on the Bill would be delayed to allow the SGM on the ABS (Tesco Law) aspects of the Bill to take place.
The contribution from GLC's Mike Dailly is available here.
