We’re seeking views on the ethical considerations for solicitors and firms when designing or procuring lawtech solutions.

On 13 October, the Law Society launched a discussion paper, seeking views from solicitors and law firms on the following questions.

  • Would the development of lawtech ethical guidance benefit the legal services sector, lawtech developers and the UK jurisdiction?
    • If yes, what should those principles cover?
  • Are there existing principles or standards (internationally, or in the UK in other relevant sectors) that the UK should consider adopting?
  • Do the current Solicitors Regulation Authority Standards and Regulations enable effective and compliant design and procurement of lawtech?

If you’d like to feed back on the paper, email your responses to parliamentary@lawsociety.org.uk.

The deadline is Tuesday 17 November 2020.
