In an industry which has already been hit by government reform is there any need for further reform?
Lawyerless, online courts....whatever next....driverless cars?
The government’s lawyer-bashing contrasts sharply with its appeasement of disgraced bankers and media groups. I am sure that David Cameron, if accused of bullying, would give one of his sincere-voiced, customer-service homilies on how his government is determined to stamp it out. But if you compare the treatment given by his government to the politically strong banks and financial institutions on the one hand, to what is dished out to the more politically weak lawyers on the other, you can draw your own conclusions. There is plenty of evidence.
