Following a year of engagement, consultation and research, the LSB have launched Reshaping legal services: a sector-wide strategy.
The strategy outlines how long-term, sustainable change is needed to reshape legal services so that we can better meet society’s needs. It builds on the State of Legal Services 2020 report, which offers an evidence-based account of the legal services sector over the last ten years and the challenges it continues to face and the three strategic themes for the sector to address to reshape legal services: fairer outcomes, stronger confidence and better services.
Critically, the strategy recognises the importance of collaboration. We invite you to work with us and others across the sector to contribute to meeting the strategy’s aims.
We have also published our 2021-22 business plan and response to the recent consultation. The business plan sets out the our budget and priorities for the year, and we are looking at which areas will be best supported by collaboration. We are grateful for the offers already received and welcome other expressions of interest.
We are grateful to those who have contributed to this strategy’s development and who recognise the collective work needed to deliver better outcomes for society. We look forward to working with you.
