This chapter explores the regulation of legal professions. It looks at different theories of regulation before outlining the argument for self-regulation of legal services providers. It then considers ways in which future practitioners are prepared to make ethical choices by legal education and training. It also outlines the regulatory mechanisms used and the place of codes of conduct in ensuring ethical performance. The chapter concludes by outlining the change in regulatory philosophy prompted by the Legal Services Act 2007. Traditional methods of regulation are juxtaposed with the regulatory regimes beginning to emerge in response to the Act.
