The SRA has announced a new consultation:-

Ban on referral fees in personal injury cases

This consultation invites views on proposals for implementing the ban on referral fees in personal injury cases, which is set out in the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO) and is expected to come into effect in April 2013. It builds on the foundations laid in the discussion document we published in June.

In this formal consultation the SRA discusses the responses to its June discussion document and how it proposes to deal with the issues raised; sets out proposals for implementing the relevant provisions of LASPO, including revised/new outcomes and indicative behaviours; includes information for the profession about how it will interpret the provisions of LASPO for regulatory purposes; sets out draft strategy for supervision and enforcement.

Any changes to the regulatory framework will come into effect in April 2013.
