The CLC is proposing to make no changes to licence and practice fees for the year beginning November 2013. The methods for calculation of fees and the levels of fee will remain the same as those for the current year. This is subject to approval by the Legal Services Board.
Chief Executive of the CLC, Sheila Kumar said: ‘At the CLC we are working hard to keep costs under control and to reduce them wherever we can. There are some significant investments we need to make in vital infrastructure such as a new customer relationship management system to improve our services to the regulated community and a new website that will support better engagement with those we regulate, consumers and policy-makers. We intend to deliver those without placing any further demands on the profession.’
