MINISTER OF COMMERCE DONVILLE INNIss has called for a total reform of the legal profession.
He contended that one of the significant weaknesses in the legal system was that “lawyers govern themselves too much”.
Speaking last night in Wanstead, St James, at the first meeting for the year of the Democratic Labour Party’s St James South branch, the MP said that one of his major issues with the system was that the Bar Association’s disciplinary committee was comprised entirely of lawyers.
That he described as fundamentally wrong.
However, he was adamant that he would not address the matter regarding his political colleague and Speaker of the House Michael Carrington who the court ruled against and ordered him to pay a legal client.
He said that matter would be “dealt with one way or another”. (SDB Media)
