Lord Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Legal Education and Conduct: press cuttings

A.ACLEC: LORD CHANCELLOR'S ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON LEGAL EDUCATION AND CONDUCT (1991-1999): press cuttings, 1991-1999

Extent and form: 9 boxes
Access: open

Administrative history: the Lord Chancellor's Advisory Committee (ACLEC) was established in 1991 under the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990. The Committee had the general duty of assisting in the maintenance and development of standards in the education, training and conduct of those offering legal services. In the field of legal education and training, its brief was as follows:

1. to keep under review the education and training of those who offer to provide legal services;

2. to consider the need for continuing education and training for such persons and the form it should take;

3. to consider the steps which professional and other bodies should take to ensure that their members benefit from such continuing education and training.

ACLEC was abolished by Statutory Instrument 1999 No.3296. Its functions were taken over by a new Legal Services Consultative Panel within the Lord Chancellor's Department.

Archival history: in 1999 a set of press cuttings relating to ACLEC's activities was offered by the ACLEC Secretary to Avrom Sherr, Woolf Professor of Legal Education at IALS. Professor Sherr passed them to the Records of Legal Education Archives in 2000.

Scope and content: the material comprises press cuttings for 1991 and 1993-1999 (cuttings for 1992 are missing). The cuttings refer to items of interest to, and relating to, ACLEC in areas such as legal education and training, conduct, complaints, equal opportunities, legal aid and overseas issues.

Arrangement: the cuttings are arranged chronologically; within each chronological grouping (approximately one month) they are further arranged into subject headings, with a descriptive note at the front of each group of cuttings. Each group has been allocated a number, which is included in the item description below; some are missing e.g. all for 1992; nos 9-12 for 1999.

Accruals: no further accruals are expected.

Copyright: refer to individual items for newspaper references; copyright resides with the relevant publication. Copyright in the summary lists at the front of each monthly collection belongs to the Lord Chancellor's Department.

Related material available elsewhere: the Committee was a statutory body whose records were transferred to the Public Record Office (PRO). They will be found under the following PRO class numbers:
KP1 Registered files 1991-1999
KP2 Publications 1991-1999

The Committee also produced an annual report detailing its activities, and several other publications, most of which should be available in law libraries.

A second set of press cuttings has been sent to Warwick University.
