Legal Disciplinary Practices

The Legal Services Act 2007 amended statutory powers of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) – the independent regulatory organisation of the Law Society – to enable it to regulate legal disciplinary practices (LDPs), that is firms in which solicitors can join with other types of lawyers and have up to 25% of non-lawyers as managers. LDP’s came into force on 31 March 2009.

Practising Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives are ‘authorised persons’ under the Act and are now able to become a partner (director/shareholder in a company or member in an LLP) in an SRA-authorised firm, as are barristers, licensed conveyancers, notaries, patents and trade mark agents and Costs Lawyers.

The Council for Licensed Conveyancers already has more flexible statutory powers than the SRA, but its powers have been amended in broadly the same way as those of the SRA.

Chartered Legal Executive Partners

On 9 March 2011, glasses were raised at the House of Commons as the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives toasted its first 100 Chartered Legal Executive Partners and its first Chartered Legal Executive Judge.

In LDPs in England and Wales the most common non-solicitor partner is a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer.
