Ongoing Work


On 29 March 2021, we published a strategy for the legal services sector. This is the culmination of an extensive programme of engagement and evidence-gathering, including the State of Legal Sector 2020 report that we published in November 2020.

The golden thread of the strategy is the need to reshape legal services to better meet society’s needs.

Our final business plan 2021-22 focuses on the areas where regulatory activity can have the greatest impact in reshaping legal services, including equality, diversity and inclusion, consumer engagement and facilitating innovation.
