Management Systems for Law Practices
A principal of a law practice should ensure that appropriate management systems are implemented and maintained by the practice
The Legal Profession Uniform Law (Uniform Law) requires each principal of a law practice to ensure that reasonable steps are taken to ensure that: all legal practitioner associates of the practice comply with their obligations under the Uniform Law, the Legal Profession Uniform Rules (Uniform Rules) and their other professional obligations; and the legal services provided by the practice are provided in accordance with the Uniform Law, Uniform Rules and other professional obligations. The Victorian Legal Services Board (Board) may give a management system direction to a law practice if the Board considers it reasonable to do so after an examination, investigation or audit conducted under the Uniform Law.
