LSB State of Legal Services Report 2020, draft strategy and business plan consultation – end 5th Feb 2021

Following the publication of the State of Legal Services 2020 report last month, the LSB has today launched a consultation on the sector wide draft strategy, and our 2021-22 business plan. The consultation closes on Friday 5th February 2021.


The State of Legal Services 2020 report offers an evidence-based account of the legal services sector over the last ten years, and points to challenges that the sector continues to face under three strategic themes: fairer outcomes, stronger confidence and better services.


The draft strategy for the legal services sector outlines how long-term, sustainable change is needed to reshape legal services so that they can better meet the needs of society. Our draft business plan 2021-22 outlines how we will begin to play our part to deliver on the strategy.


The LSB is hosting a webinar during the consultation period to discuss the findings of the State of Legal Services 2020 report, and the draft strategy. You are invited to join us for the interactive webinar to share your thoughts on these documents.


Date and time: 3.30pm – 5pm, Thursday 14 January 2021
