Testing the Paradigm: Regulatory Objectives and Access to Justice in the UK, Canada and the U.S.

David Udell, Cardozo School of Law (US) (Moderator); Judith McMorrow, Boston College Law School (US); Richard Miller, Law Society, England and Wales (UK); Malcolm Mercer, Law Society of Upper Canada (Canada); and Ronald Minkoff, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC (US)

This program will involve presentations by UK and Canadian lawyers who are active in the Regulatory Objectives movement there, as well as two law professors who have studied this issue closely. We will look at whether the use of Regulatory Objectives and ABS structures has helped to alleviate access to justice concerns for poor and middle class clients in the UK and Canada, and analyze those outcomes in the context of the objections raised in the U.S. to Regulatory Objectives/ABS.
