McBride and Diver respond to Scottish Government consultation on legal services regulation

Pauline McBride and Laurence Diver have responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the reform of legal services regulation. They highlight the importance of an independent legal profession, arguing that any reforms should not view legal practice as merely a market-driven service but as something that necessarily requires, in the first place, a commitment to justice and the Rule of Law. They also emphasise the risk of automation bias arising in the use of legal tech, and caution against uncritical adoption of new technologies that might inadvertently corrode the ethos of the Rule of Law.
