Consultation 06.10

Joint consultation on Litigation rights

Ref: 06.10

ILEX is making an application under the Legal Services Act 2007 to become an approved regulator to grant additional rights to its members to undertake reserved legal activities.

The application seeks to grant rights to conduct litigation to qualified members. It also includes an application to grant rights of audience to members who qualify as litigators. IPS and ILEX are consulting on the proposals.

This consultation document begins by outlining the nature of the application and summarising of the proposals by which members will qualify as litigators and advocates. It then outlines the conduct and practice rules to which members will be subject.
