For example, it might be in the interests of both client and representative for that representative to mislead a court; the purpose of regulation in this context is to reduce the risk of that happening.

However, it is also important to note that all consumers do not require the same level of protection, or possibly any protection at all. Regulatory restrictions on practice beyond this need to be justified with specific analysis against the regulatory objectives and our particular focus as set out in this policy statement. This helps the focus on access to justice and growth of the legal market alongside the protection of each client.
