Raising Standards

You can't have too much regulation, and you can't get too much accreditation (so long as you still have space on your letterhead for the logo). Accordingly, the Association of Regulated Solicitors ('ARS') has today initiated their own accreditation scheme, to which I am pleased to say I have joined.

ARS sets out its aims thus:
  • To promote extra excellence within the profession;
  • To reassure the public that the profession continues to take meaningful steps to raise standards;
  • To provide further bureaucracy, to keep solicitors busy in these hard times; and
  • For the sake of the environment, to ensure that no space is wasted on solicitors' letterheads.
