For our column over at Jordan’s this month, we respond to the judiciary’s current consultation on lay advisers, set out a blueprint for a working handbook and offer suggestions for replacing the term McKenzie Friend.

The Handbook is divided into six chapters and covers, we hope, every area of non conventional legal assistance. We also suggest calling McKenzie Friends lay lawyers, a term which we feel embodies their working spirit whilst acknowledging their path into law.

You can check out the blueprint for the handbook and our thoughts on the consultation over at the Jordans website, including our recommendation that the judiciary look closely at solicitors offering dual services within the McKenzie sector.
