What are the penalties for carrying out a Reserved Legal
Activity when not authorised?
It is an offence to carry on a reserved legal activity when you
are not entitled to. You could be imprisoned or fined. If any such
activity includes litigation and/or rights of audience, you may
also be found in contempt of court.
To undertake reserved legal activities, when you are not
authorised to do so (or exempt from the requirement to be
authorised) you will also be in breach of your code of conduct, and
are likely to find yourself subject to CILEx
Regulation disciplinary procedures.
