Message from Jonathan Goldsmith, Chair, BIC International Trade in Legal Services Committee, February 2021
The IBA has recently issued an information paper for member bars and law societies with ideas for tackling the issue of unregulated providers of legal services. The paper is intended as a background source of help, for instance when a bar finds itself engaged in discussions with decision-makers regarding the treatment of unregulated providers within its jurisdiction.
It is my privilege and sincere honour to wish you each a Happy New Year in my capacity as Chair of the Bar Issues Commission (BIC) for the next two years. After a very difficult 2020, we are all looking forward to a more promising year in 2021 and beyond. Using this opportunity, I would like to report our goals and team to all of you.
The BIC was able to provide an opportunity for our Member Organisations to discuss the IBA Reform and Strategic Planning Processes, and together we were able to provide valuable input to both initiatives. The BIC continues to support both processes and is dedicated to implementing each measure, which has and will result from them. We will strongly co-operate with the other IBA Constituents in these efforts.
