Law society not consulted in recent laws passed

President Peter Kuman revealed to the Special Parliamentary Committee on Public Sector Reform and Service Delivery hearing that the society does not play a role in the Law Reform Commission but any draft or proposed legislation that is circulated to them, is forwarded to its members for their input.

“A classic example is the Anti-Money Laundering legislation that got passed which affects the profession in a significant way. We were not invited by the Central Bank and the Law Reform Commission to comment on it,” Kuman told the committee.
