The Law Society’s response to the Ministry of Justice Consultation on Otterburn and KPMG reports is supported and endorsed by the Society of Asian Lawyers.
SAL welcome the Law Society’s inclusion of paragraph 38 detailing the impact of the current Government proposals on Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) firms. SAL has always maintained the impact of the Governments proposals will disproportionately affect small to medium firms. It is an established fact that many criminal defence Asian lawyers practice in such firms. SAL will continue to support its members in this regard.
