"The professions have a privileged and trusted role in society. In return they are required to live up to their own professional standards" opined Lord Justice Rupert Jackson.
If only that were still the case. The very concept of solicitors being part of a profession has become an anachronism in the eyes of the SRA and many others. No more Clients - just customers. No more professional firms, - instead we have ABS's - quoted companies - old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
No more overriding duty to the client and the administration of justice - just an overriding duty to make money.
In its Alice and Wonderland world the SRA told solicitors to act as any other business, and then demands they behave like professionals.
