The Law Society seeks to align the commercial imperatives that drive the business of legal practice with the regulatory framework largely contained in the Legal Profession Uniform Law.
This approach encourages solicitors to view regulatory compliance, not as an authoritative burden, but as a means to generate client satisfaction and drive profitability.
Regulatory Compliance Support Unit (RCSU)
Professional Support Solicitors at the Law Society have detailed knowledge of the Uniform Law and an understanding of solicitors’ working lives and can provide information and guidance to assist legal practitioners with their regulatory compliance obligations under the Uniform Law. By contacting our Regulatory Compliance unit, legal practitioners can access confidential assistance to prevent compliance issues from escalating into complaints and disciplinary actions.
