Regulation 4: Review of lists of recognised jurisdictions and qualified lawyers
We will review the lists of recognised jurisdictions and qualified lawyers every five years or whenever written evidence is received which suggests the need for a jurisdiction or qualification to be reviewed.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you have not qualified in a recognised jurisdiction and/or are not a qualified lawyer for the purposes of these regulations, you have no right to appeal this designation by us.
