Scottish accountants evidence on legal services bill

Reasons why accountants should never be allowed near legal services are strongly evident from the shrill testimony given by officials from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, who appeared before the Justice Committee of the Scottish Parliament on 5th January 2010, giving evidence on the Legal Services Bill, where it is proposed to allow non-lawyers to handle business such as will writing currently only handled by law firms and solicitors in Scotland.

Vivienne Muir, executive director, regulation and compliance, and Charlotte Barbour, project director, regulation and compliance, from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland asked that accountants be allowed to handle legal services - not a good idea.
