Overview

The Legal Services Board (LSB) oversees the regulation of legal services in England and Wales. It does this through its oversight of ten bodies, the approved regulators, who themselves regulate directly the circa 120,000 lawyers practising throughout the jurisdiction. The LSB does not regulate any legal service provider directly. Working with the approved regulators, the LSB is responsible for ensuring the highest standards of competence, conduct and service in the legal profession both for the benefit of individual consumers and the public generally. The LSB is also responsible for appointing the Office for Legal Complaints, to administer an ombudsman scheme to deal with consumers' complaints about legal services.

Established 2009.
