We are delighted to announce the appointment of Amanda Lee as the new Chair of the PPR’s Register Regulatory Committee.
Amanda says about her new appointment “The Professional Paralegal Register plays an important role in safeguarding the interests of the public and other members of the legal profession through the establishment of a robust voluntary regulatory scheme for those practising as paralegals. The Register Regulatory Committee is a vital part of that scheme.
Mindful of the importance of properly protecting and promoting professional standards through such voluntary regulation, I accepted the invitation of the Directors of PPR to serve as Chairperson of the RRC without hesitation and look forward to playing a key role in upholding the important standards established by the PPR, to enable it to continue to facilitate the protection of consumers, enhance consumer choice in the legal services sector and promote the role of paralegals as a recognised ‘fourth arm’ of the legal profession”.
Rita Leat, Managing Director of the Professional Paralegal Register said: “Amanda is an excellent appointment who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise and we look forward to working with together.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our exiting Chair, Sean Randall Morris who was in position for over a year”.
