Two weeks, that’s how much time attorneys and members of the public have to comment and make recommendations on the Legal Practitioners Bill.
Financial Services Minister Hon. Wayne Panton says a November 10th deadline has been set for proposals.
He says those recommendations will be taken on board and he’s establishing an independent committee which includes representatives of small firms, as well as, representatives of the Caymanian Bar Association and the Law Society.
“The committee will consider the extent to which those comments make sense whether they are justifiable and whether they can be included as a committee stage amendment to the existing bill,” Mr Panton
The Legal Practitioners Bill some 15 years in the making, was deferred after complaints from attorneys who wanted more time for review and comment.
