Lawcast 181: Baroness Deech, Chair of The Bar Standards Board on legal education and the regulation of the profession

Today I am talking to Baroness Deech, an academic lawyer, former Principal of St Anne’s College Oxford, and a bioethicist. Most noted for chairing the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), from 1994 to 2002, Lady Deech sits as a Crossbench peer in the House of Lords (since 2005) and, since 2009,  Chair of The Bar Standards Board

The legal landscape is changing so, this afternoon, I ask Baroness Deech for her  views on regulation of the legal profession, regulation of the law schools, the changing face of legal education and the changing legal landscape.  I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion and Baroness Deech did not pull her punches.  I didn’t, for one moment, think she would. Food for a bit of thought?
