New consultation – Higher Rights of Audience

Consultation to consider whether to make an application to be able to authorise CILEX Practitioners with litigation and advocacy rights for Higher Rights of Audience


Today we have launched our new consultation which seeks to determine whether CRL should make an application to the Legal Services Board to enable competent CILEX Practitioners holding litigation and advocacy rights to apply for authorisation to conduct advocacy in all courts (Higher Rights of Audience).


We are seeking views on how we propose to assess applicants for authorisation in all courts (Higher Rights).  We welcome responses from our regulated community and other stakeholders including other approved regulators, consumers of legal services and any other interested parties.
