Summary
"Few make the connection between how legal services are regulated and how difficult it is to access legal services. For decades academics and others have debated whether the legal profession is self-regulated and whether it should be. But is it the right debate? Independent, accountable, and transparent regulatory bodies, effective oversight of those bodies, the engagement of citizens in the regulatory process, evidence-based research to assess the impact of regulation, and an approach that is proportionate and targeted to actual risks are essential for effective regulation. This book explains how England, Wales, and Australia have, by embracing these essential elements, successfully modernized their regulatory environments for legal services, and how Canada has started down its own path to the same. In contrast, by rejecting these elements, the United States remains paralyzed in an unproductive regulatory environment. This book provides a blueprint for how the US can breathe new life into its regulatory environment for legal services. Ultimately, modernization will require more (and better) regulation that is financed publicly through equitable, progressive revenue sources"--Back cover
