Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality
Legal Services Regulatory Authority: Discussion
The authority representatives said that the functions of the authority include encouraging a strong independent and effective legal profession, the promotion of interests in respect of consumers and the proper and effective administration of justice. Does the authority have any opinion on the current Judicial Appointments Commission Bill that is going through the Oireachtas? It relates to the proper and effective administration of justice. It has been criticised from a European perspective. Has the authority taken a view on that?
